of 1973, Morrison had embarked on a three month tour with his eleven-piece band, The Caledonia Soul Orchestra. Although the resulting concerts and live album, ''It's Too Late to Stop Now'' have come to be known as a performing high for Morrison, the tour was physically and emotionally exhausting. Morrison decided afterwards to take a vacation break, returning to Ireland after a six year absence obtensibly to record an RTE (Raidió Teilifís Éireann) national TV show. Heylin


campaign attacks

Republican Army (IRA) allegedly conducted a campaign of murder and ethnic cleansing against Unionists in parts of the country such as Cork. Historians disagree as to whether such murders were isolated incidents or parts of a wider organised campaign. Attacks continued in the 1920s against many Unionists who had assisted the British in the War, and in the process 300 historic homes were burned. Such attacks were said to be reprisals for the British forces' destruction of the homes and property of republicans (Irish republicanism), actual or suspected. * Emigration. Large numbers of Unionists left Ireland (voluntarily or otherwise) in the years before and after independence, mainly for Northern Ireland, Great Britain and Canada. * Assimilation. Many of the Unionists who remained assimilated (cultural assimilation) to some extent into the majority nationalist culture. This was encouraged by the Free State (Irish Free State) government, and was largely accepted with resignation. The process was accelerated by the pro-Free State stance taken by most Unionists in the Irish Civil War. The process of assimilation had begun prior to Irish independence, with a number of Protestant Nationalists playing leading roles in the Irish nationalist and Gaelic revival movements. Structural Some official agencies and organisations at a national level have developed specific structural links as part of the union. These links reflect the responsibilities of the agency or organisation to the citizens of Northern Ireland and the other UK regions. However, they do not indicate support for political unionism as the UK Civil Service is regulated by strict laws on impartiality. In addition, Northern Ireland is nowadays part of a web of co-operative links with the Republic of Ireland (north-south), the United Kingdom (east-west), the European Union and the United States. * Reinhold Messner, a renowned Italian mountaineer and explorer from South Tyrol * Ian Paisley, leading politician of Northern Ireland, a member from 1979 to 2004 with a "triple mandate" as MEP, MP (Parliament of the United Kingdom), and MLA (Members of the Northern Ireland Assembly) * John Hume, another leading Northern Irish politician and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, similarly having held a "triple mandate" Legislatures using this system include those of Albania, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, East Timor, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, Guatemala, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, Uruguay and Wales. The system has also been used in Northern Ireland to allocate the ministerial positions in the Northern Ireland Executive; for the 'top-up' seats in the London Assembly; in some countries during elections to the European Parliament (European Parliament election, 2004); and during the 1997 Constitution (1997 Constitution of Thailand)-era for allocating party-list parliamentary seats in Thailand.

Thai Politics after the 2005 Parliamentary Election, Strategic Insights, Volume IV, Issue 6 (June 2005) A modified form was used for elections in the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly but abandoned in favour of the Hare-Clark system. The system is also used in practice for the allocation between political groups of a large number of posts (Vice Presidents, committee chairmen and vice-chairmen, delegation chairmen and vice-chairmen) in the European Parliament. Some people think that the town was named after the island of Cuba. A common reason for this is that there are other towns in the area with names of Spanish (Spain) cities or towns, such as Salamanca, Cadiz, Panama, Mexico and Bolivar, to name a few. Another town, Belfast, although not Spanish, bears the name of another foreign city (in Northern Ireland or Ulster). The scheme applies only to England, Scotland and Wales. Alternative systems are used in Northern Ireland (see Roads in Northern Ireland), the Isle of Man (see Roads in the Isle of Man), Jersey, Guernsey, and British overseas territories. All of these numbering schemes use identical basic conventions and road-sign designs. SPC's founding charter is the Canberra Agreement.

They often specialise in a particular area of law. There is, however, no direct equivalent to a legal executive in Scotland. Law clerks in Canada and paralegals in the US occupy the same role as legal executives elsewhere while having lesser professional status. Legal executives are recognised in England and Wales, both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. In England and Wales they are now know as "chartered legal executives".

I believe that this is correct and that therefore his nationality should be Northern Irish but I'm not certain. It seems like an obvious mistake which was why I thought there might be another reason behind it, e.g. dual nationality, Dennis's preference, etc., but there's no source to say if that is the case. If anyone knows that would be great. I've posted a message under Talk:Dennis Taylor so if you can clarify there if anyone finds something out that would be great and clear things up.

The overall decline has been attributed to a loss of food-rich permanent pasture, leading to the low survival rates of young birds. British Trust for Ornithology: Starling<

'''Northern Ireland''' (

Northern Ireland was created in 1921, when Ireland was partitioned (Partition of Ireland) between Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland by an act (Government of Ireland Act 1920) of the British parliament. Unlike Southern Ireland, which would become the Irish Free State in 1922, the majority of Northern Ireland's population were unionists (Unionism in Ireland) or loyalists (Ulster loyalism), who wanted to remain within the United Kingdom. Historically, Northern Ireland was marked by discrimination and hostility between these two communities in what Nobel Peace Prize-winner David Trimble called a "cold house" for Catholics. In the late 1960s, conflict between the two communities, and involving state forces, erupted into three decades of violence known as the Troubles, which claimed over 3,000 lives and caused over 50,000 casualties. Security and defense-related statistics. Conflict Archive on the Internet (CAIN) (Conflict Archive on the Internet) The Good Friday Agreement in 1998 was a major step in the peace process (Northern Ireland peace process) although sectarianism and religious segregation still remain major social problems.

Northern Ireland has historically been the most industrialised region of the island. After declining as a result of the political and social turmoil of the Troubles, and down by 1.2 percentage points over the year, Department of Enterprise, Trade, and Investment: Full Economic Overview, 15 October 2014 similar to the UK figure of 6.2%. The Guardian newspaper:UK unemployment rate falls to lowest level since 2008 financial crisis, 17 September 2014 58.2% of those unemployed had been unemployed for over a year.

Prominent artists and sports persons (Culture of Northern Ireland) from Northern Ireland include Van Morrison, Rory McIlroy, Joey Dunlop and George Best. Some from that part of the island prefer to identify as Irish (e.g., poet Seamus Heaney and actor Liam Neeson). Cultural links between Northern Ireland, the rest of Ireland, and the rest of the UK are complex, with Northern Ireland sharing both the culture of Ireland and the culture of the United Kingdom. In most sports, the island of Ireland fields a single team, a notable exception being association football. Northern Ireland competes separately (Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games) at the Commonwealth Games, and athletes from Northern Ireland may compete for either Great Britain (Great Britain at the Olympics) or Ireland (Ireland at the Olympics) at the Olympic Games.
