'''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.
