Northern Ireland's Conflict
A.K.A "The Troubles"
On October 5th, 1968, two conflicting religious groups marched the same route. They were met by officers, and conflict ensued.
On January 30th, 1972, around 10,000 people gathered for a protest in Derry. Paratroopers were ordered to arrest Rioters, but shot 13 instead. U2 has made a song about this day (see below).

All the fighting ended on April 10th, 1998. An agreement was made to make a Northern Ireland assembly that shared power.
The Aftermath of The Troubles can still be seen in Northern Ireland. There are still walls that separate Protestant and Catholic communities, and Violence still occasionally takes place. There was a total death toll of over 2,000, and around 11,000 total forced migrations.
