You can be from Northern Ireland (therefore Irish) and British, seeing as Northern Ireland is part of Britain, the same way as i am Scottish AND British.

Especially when Scots have seats in our Parliament, but we don't get any in theirs.
I totally agree, and i am Scottish. It's ridiculous. We even have a Scottish Health Minister, for god's sake. What right has he to come down here and govern our health system?

Let's sort this out...
The state that is currently known as the Republic of Ireland (or Eire) became a Republic, but under British Rule in the 1890's - 1910's (I think). Those people who signed the agreement were then executed by Irish Terrorists who didn't want to serve under British Rule.

They then became totally seperate from Britain, however, it was decided that the Provinces now known as Northern Ireland would remain under British Rule.

As this is seperate from the British Mainland, it became known as The United Kingdom of Great Britiain and Northern Ireland. That does not mean that Northern Ireland is not part of, or any less a part of the rest of the United Kingdom.

Thus endth todays lesson.

American accents sound so casual and horrifyingly nasal! I hate them. However, I hardly seem to notice when they're on TV.
i have a california accent....the reason why the accents that you hear on tv are so different from real life is because there california accents.... which is really (in america) the LACK of accent........ but i LOVE southern accents....how could you not?

Derry is in Northern Ireland, currently heavily divided by the UK/Eire split (although you'll get very few pro-brit people up there).

It is officially (Ordanance Survey) called Londonderry, but they consider it to be a crime to call it that - which is why the Irish call it Derry, the British call it LondonDerry. That answer your question?

TIOCFAIDH AR LA - and? I know what it means you pratt, in fact, I probably know more about the history of Ireland, the language and the Troubles than half of you over there - all you want is a bloody fight, about a couple of provinces that, to be quite honest, nobody cares about. In fact, I see absoultely no advantage in being associated with the Northern Irish.

Times have changed, the IRA, UDA and all the rest pose absolutely no threat to us what-so-ever.

What crack's me right up is the fact that you are using UK, yes, that is right you eejit, UNITED KINGDOM Learning Forum to talk about it. Use your head sonny.
