During the classical Irish period, 1200-1600, a standardized literary language flourished among the literati of the era, the poets and professional scholars, who were supported by literary families and chieftains.
This movement gained strength, with the language serving as a powerful symbol of national identity (Ó Baoill 1988:110), until the advent of the free state in 1922, when the movement was absorbed into the political agenda and responsibility for the restoration of the language largely devolved on the educational system.

 History-Modern Ireland   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
With the onset of World War I (1914—1918), thousands of Irish Catholics and Protestants put aside their differences to join the British fighting forces while, at the same time, many Irish were opposed to fighting alongside the British–further aggravating tensions between Unionists and nationalists on the home front.
The new Irish Republic continued to exert its independence and, in 1949, formally withdrew from the British Commonwealth (the confederation of independent nations united under the British crown).
Yet the Irish question remains far from resolved: the 1994 ceasefire declared by the Catholic and Protestant paramilitary groups collapsed in the spring of 1996, in the face of the I.R.A.'s refusal to surrender its arms and the British government's refusal to negotiate with the I.R.A. until such a surrender took place.

 Irish Echo Online - News
The ICI is an immigrant advocacy group and it opposes the government's bid to alter the Irish Constitution in a way that would make it far more difficult for non-Irish citizens to secure Irish citizenship for their children born in the state.
Specifically, under the government's proposal, Irish citizenship would not be granted to a child unless one of its parents had been legally resident on the island of Ireland for three of the four years prior to its birth.
Morrison, who fully supports the Irish government's right to combat illegal immigration in the broadest sense of the term, said the argument that the proposed amendment would close a specific "loophole" that was leading to abuse of Irish citizenship law was not valid.
