  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Northern Ireland violence: Arlene Foster and Michelle O’Neill condemn riots and call for calm” – below is their description.

    The leader of the DUP Arlene Foster said the scenes witnessed across Northern Ireland were “totally unacceptable”, as she warned that the injuries to police officers, harm to Northern Ireland’s image and people’s property has taken the region backwards.

    Speaking in the Assembly, the Northern Ireland First Minister, said: “Today is not the time to rehearse the arguments in the last few weeks. We should all know that when politics are perceived to fail, those who fill the vacuum cause despair.

    “Northern Ireland faces deep political challenges ahead.”

    Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill, who represents the Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein, said politicians must be “united” in calling out those who organise young people to take part in violence.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
