I think the Larne gun-running was a dangerous precedent. It introduced the gun to Irish politics and it was used to circumvent democracy because a bunch of Orangemen were paranoid of having devolution.

I know quite a bit of English who are indifferent to Northern Ireland and think Orangemen cause too much trouble than they're worth.

Northern Ireland is a mess. Maybe after this generation dies off in 50 years, the younger ones will try to put the past behind them and look to the future.

Will I see a unified Ireland? Not in my lifetime. It's gonna take a fuckton of investment and infrastructure to deal with that mess. I don't have a drop of Irish or Scottish blood in me, but it's disgusting that Western Europe has that kind of filth infesting.

Just as bad, but the British authorities turned a blind eye to Larne, but put a stop to Howth. This and the Curragh Mutiny didn't endear the Irish to promises by Parliament.

Honestly, if World War One didn't break out, Ireland would erupt in civil war. Because either Home Rule would be enacted or the British would have to find a solution that satisfies both parties.

What a lot of people don't know is that Northern Ireland is actually in much better condition than the Republic.

>IM-FUCKING-PLYING
GDP per capita Northern Ireland:
>€21,000
GDP per capita Republic of Ireland
>€39,900
>>
>>307752
>muh GDP

Which matters dick when NI is part of a bigger country that generously subsidizes it and the Republic is absolutely devastated by unemployment.

Having lived in both I can assure you, they are both shitholes. NI just doesn't bother pretending otherwise.
>>
>>307775
GDP per capita, you eejit. That means how much wealth, on average, a person has, which by the way, includes public spending
>devastated by unemployment
Northern Ireland 205
>~6%
Republic of Ireland 2015
>8.9%

On the face of it, yes, they have higher unemployment, but that doesn't include economic inactivity (ie, people who are of working age not seeking out jobs), which in northern Ireland, at about 27%, is one of the highest in western Europe.
>>
>>307808
GDP per capita isn't a measure of average wealth, it's a measure of average productivity. Which is largely consistent with the fact that in NI a disproportionate amount of jobs are in the public sector, which produces fuck all.

>but that doesn't include economic inactivity (ie, people who are of working age not seeking out jobs), which in northern Ireland, at about 27%, is one of the highest in western Europe.
The fact that the Republic of Ireland has less people simply choosing not to work yet higher unemployment simply indicates that business in the south is in such a state that jobs are much rarer.
>>
>>307853
It's not a measure of average wealth, you're right, it's instead a measure of average income. You may be confusing GDP per capita with GDP per hours worked for productivity. However, that is a fair point, the productivity down south is far better than up north.

As for why they have more unemployment, they're recovering from the largest economic depression in recent times. Why are we up north not as affected by the same crash? Our reliance on public spending. In the long run, they'll likely have a more healthy employment than us.

NI is in decent shape because it's literally a black hole which sucks billions from London every year.

No irish person i have met has ever, ever, brought it up.

Pretty much just an issue for poor people and americans ᎢᏴᎻ no one gives a shit on the mainland anymore.
