An island on the Atlantic, in western Europe, divided by the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. The questions may refer to both the island itself and Ireland as a country.

Questions should be related to history of the island in general, both as part of former English and Scottish possessions, then of United Kingdom. The questions can cover independence movements and actions (consider adding the tag), and history of the British part of the island (Ulster or Northern Ireland).

For the history of modern state Republic of Ireland, use the tag instead.
