Conflict in North Ireland

Catholocism vs. Prodestantism

background

In the sixteenth century, an attempt to bring back the Christian Church developed into a Protestant movement that hurt the religious unity of Europe.

Is the conflict over?

No, there are still arguments, segregation, and hostility today. From the late 1960s a civil rights movement broke out in Ulster to promote the political and social rights of the Irish Catholic minority there. This led to violence with the involvement of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) on the Catholic side and the Ulster Defence Force (UDF) on the Protestant side.

How has religious conflict in Northern Ireland impacted economic and cultural development of the region?
