Yes you can pm for specifics. The whole conflict can be dated back to 1801 with the Act of Union. Ireland was incorporated into the UK. However, the region know as Ulster was different to that of the South in many ways. One of the ways was in religion. The South was mostly populated by Roman Catholics whilst the Ulster (with the exception of 2 counties) was populated mostly by Protestants. Those in the north wanted to uphold the union and ties with UK, whilst most of those in the South wanted a republic-independent of the UK.

Republicans-tend to be Catholics and live in the South
Loyalists--tend to be Protestant-but obviously there are exceptions

Extremely basic explanation above--go to the bbc website..to the history section and you should be able to find more info there!
