Ireland is a contentious issue, but technically it is part of the British Isles.
Republic of Eire ( Southern Ireland ) CATHOLIC
Northern Island = part of the UK PROTESTANT
There was a contingent of Irish PRO-BOERS that fought on the side of the Republican forces
There were also Irish in the British Army -- at the battle of Colenso they ended up shooting each other !
THIS is the story of IRELAND -- and the BREXIT Irish BACKSTOP !
