    Northern Ireland’s devolved government collectively appealed for calm on Thursday, ending days of disagreement over the cause of nightly outbreaks of street violence.

    Democratic Unionist Party Leader Arlene Foster and Sinn Féin Leader Michelle O’Neill both expressed concern over the violence, with the former saying political problems called for political solutions not street violence, while the latter called on leaders to stand united.

    Crowds of youth gathered in the past few days in Belfast, with some pelting police vans with petrol bombs and setting a hijacked bus on fire. Several of the demonstrations had taken place in pro-British areas of Belfast as frustration grows among many in the pro-British Unionist community at new trade barriers between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom that resulted from Britain’s exit from the European Union.

    There have also been attacks on police and a photojournalist from the Belfast Telegraph newspaper.

  • 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.
