Irish can trace their history back to when the celts first landed on the
island back to 600 bc to 150 bc.They were invaded by Norsemens in the 8th
century, which was one of the first major enemies the Irish had.They finally ended

the Danish people with King Brian Boru,the 9th king of Ireland in the year 1014
A.D.Then the Normans launched an attack to claim Ireland and that was the last
battle in Ireland for Seven struggling Irish centuries of food famines and

Ireland had major struggles leading up to
the 1800’s.Farms were  struggling to make
ends meet so things had to change in Ireland very fast.They started leaving
Ireland to find better life and they moved to the united states around boston
area.The people that stayed behind  in
Ireland were the loyal and the backbone they fought through the famine that
killed hundreds to thousands over a span 100 years.Around 1960s the famine was
no longer a problem,They had a new uprising of violence in Ireland.

 No longer did the Northern Irelanders
wanted to be a part of ireland they wanted to make a country of their own
because of the political side of ireland.So in the north the irelanders took a
rebellion,and made a small militia to protect their cause,create their own
government that still advised by those of the original country and Great
Britain Provinces.Northern Ireland was accepted to the europeans as a country
in  1973 and has been a country since
then.Ireland also played a more neutral role in world war I and  II they sent little troops to actually fight
instead ireland was used as a naval port side and where troops from Canada and
USA would come to rest and train before moving west to fight.

Ireland also became a country of poverty a bit in the future

european union.Ireland took those
economical struggles and with the help of United States nationals,Ireland would
fight back for economic stability and get ireland back on task and their

under Great Britain,and its dominance as a superpower but the financial would
stabilize and ireland would have more success and leave all the unforgettable
and dreadful years of pain and struggle and bounce back stronger.As of 2017
and, According to the economy is booming with a grow
of 20 percent since 2000s.

are many distinct features the of the beautiful country Ireland but one of the
most amazing times of the year is around St Patrick’s Day.Saint Patrick was an
irish patron saint who is said to believe to bring christian to ireland and is
called as a hero for doing so so.

There is A Lot of great things about st patrick and his
special  accomplishments that Is why he
is celebrated by the christians and nonchristians.Saint Patrick’s Day
originated in Ireland and was brought over to America.

Since its coming to the states in
the late 1880s,Saint Patricks Day has had a major impact in larger cities such
as Chicago,Boston,and the biggest city in the United States ,New York.The most
festive city of all is know other than “The city of champions”Boston. In Boston
it’s just all green,green,green just like Ireland they smother themselves in
booze and sing the songs of Eire(Ireland) and her great savior Saint
Patrick.The Ethnic distribution in Boston turns out that a city of millions is
Roughly fifthteen percent irish and they are proud of it.

The best thing about Boston is that
the Boston  Bruins embrace their love of
this irish culture every game around this time they wear green jerseys and
during their game they are surrounded by a sea of celtic green in honor of
their heritage.The city however that may have a lower irish  population but they definitely  celebrate all of it to the fullest is
chicago.Since 2009 Chicago has dyed the chicago river and completely turned it
green this was made possible by the 44th president  Barrack Obama wife michelle obama.

Chicago is the first city to do this
but the ancient irish would dye their rivers green in honor of Saint
Patrick.However The New York City irish and non irish go all out.MIllions of
Green and the Knicks Turn their jerseys Green and they took on the celtics for
the last three years on or they day after saint patrick’s day.Which is why
saint patricks Day that came from the great land of Eire is now a national
holiday in the USA. 

Other than the amazing irish holiday
is Gaelic football and Irish Sports.Gaelic football or irish rugby is one of
Ireland’s most premiere sports and has been around since the 16th century.
Gaelic Football consist of two teams of 
fifteen players on a pitch.The teams are allowed to kick punch or pass
but they cannot throw the ball.Gaelic football similar to soccer is played on a
field or as they call it a pitch and they wear uniforms called kits.Gaelic
Football is ran by The GAA or Gaelic Athletic Association,There are more than
Twenty Five Hundred clubs and the championship game is called  Senior League Championship game or The Gaelic

Another Great sport is Hurling which
is mixture of Hockey and lacrosse.Hurling consist of two teams of 15 the
objective is to put the ball pass the keeper into the net.Hurling is also ran
by GAA and has over 1500 clubs as well and the female variant is called camogie
It is played on a pitch.Hurling was developed by irish farmers as a pass time
as the crops did not grow as fast in the winter.

Ireland is a majestic and beautiful
land.There isn’t a place as heartfelt and green a place as loyal and mean as
Eire.Ireland has some unique and brilliant sports.Ireland  music and dancing i hope i can go someday and
explore all the great options.My research about ireland and my heritage was
