Celtic tribes arrived on the island between 600-150 B.C. Invasions by Norsemen that began in the late 8th century were finally ended when King Brian BORU defeated the Danes in 1014. English invasions began in the 12th century and set off more than seven centuries of Anglo-Irish struggle marked by fierce rebellions and harsh repressions. A failed 1916 Easter Monday Rebellion touched off several years of guerrilla warfare that in 1921 resulted in independence from the UK for 26 southern counties; six northern (Ulster) counties remained part of the UK. In 1949, Ireland withdrew from the British Commonwealth; it joined the European Community in 1973. Irish governments have sought the peaceful unification of Ireland and have cooperated with Britain against terrorist groups. A peace settlement for Northern Ireland is being implemented with some difficulties. In 2006, the Irish and British governments developed and began to implement the St. Andrews Agreement, building on the Good Friday Agreement approved in 1998. (from the CIA)


Economic Overview

Ireland is a small, modern, trade-dependent economy with growth averaging 6% in 1995-2007. agriculture, once the most important sector, is now dwarfed by industry and services. although the exports sector, dominated by foreign multinationals, remains a key component of ireland's economy, construction has most recently fueled economic growth along with strong consumer spending and business investment. property prices have risen more rapidly in ireland in the decade up to 2006 than in any other developed world economy. per capita gdp is 40% above that of the four big european economies and the second highest in the eu behind luxembourg, and in 2007 surpassed that of the united states. the irish government has implemented a series of national economic programs designed to curb price and wage inflation, invest in infrastructure, increase labor force skills, and promote foreign investment. a slowdown in the property market, more intense global competition, and increased costs, however, have compelled government economists to lower ireland's growth forecast slightly for 2008. ireland joined in circulating the euro on 1 january 2002 along with 11 other eu nations.
