Irov restore dreams of unification, in the north the Catholics first sang over the Protestants | St

According to the results, which were published on Thursday, 45.7 percent of the population of Northern Ireland consider themselves Catholic or were raised in the Catholic Church. 43.5 percent of people subscribe to Protestantism or other Christian religions. Five hundred ten years ago, 45 percent were Catholic and 48 percent Protestant, according to Reuters. Twenty years ago, the death rate was 44 and 53 percent in favor of the Protestant.

Free after the war of equality between Protestants and Catholics, half of whom are in favor of union with the Republic of Ireland, it was one of the main sources of violence during the decade-long conflict. The violence, which claimed 3,500 lives, ended in 1998 with the Velkopten Agreement.

Demographers have long predicted that Catholics, who are generally young and have a high birth rate, could still represent half of the population within a generation. In the regional elections in May, the irt nationalists from the Sinn Fin party won, which surprised many unionists, according to Reuters.

Although Catholics tend to support Irish nationalist parties in elections, their sweat in the face of the people does not necessarily mean that they will vote in favor of these parties in the elections, notes The Guardian. In the last elections, roughly 40 percent of the people voted for each party, 20 percent of the centrist voters rejected the traditional stickers, dov list.

The wall, the first since Britain’s departure from the European Union, showed how few people still claim British nationality. Excluding the British, 32 percent of the people are considered to be Irish, 29 percent are considered only Irish, and 20 percent are considered Severoirs only. Ten years ago, it was 40 percent British, 25 percent Irish and 21 percent Northern Ireland. In ten years, Northern Ireland has lost five percent of the population, there are 1.9 million of them. The region is so small, a quarter of the population is over 65 years old.

A potential plebiscite on the unification of Ireland and Northern Ireland would have to be held on both sides of the border. In the north, it can only be announced by the government in London, and that if there is a double presumption that half of the people are in favor of unification. The divided mood in society, however, shows that this is still a long-term trend.

According to the survey by Lord Ashcroft Polls as of last year, 41 percent of the electorate in Northern Ireland would have voted to leave the Union. Two-thirds of the respondents are convinced that the referendum would strengthen the union of Northern Ireland with the British crown. The future is not so certain.

Fifty-one percent of respondents said that if the referendum is held within the next ten years, it will result in leaving Britain. Tetina’s people are convinced of the opposite, 15 percent not. Only a quarter of the 3,000 respondents think that Northern Ireland will still be part of Britain in fifty years.

Severing Northern Ireland from Britain and uniting it with the Catholic south has again become a great darkness after Brexit. To date, London has not tolerated the so-called Northern Ireland divorce protocol of the agreement, which regulates customs control of goods transported from the British mainland to Northern Ireland.

The protocol will allow Northern Ireland’s border with the Republic of Ireland to remain open. There are fears that if the island were to be divided again by a hard border, sectarian violence could flare up again in Northern Ireland.

However, London wants to change the protocol unilaterally, because the customs border established in Ireland is seen as a weakened ground of the integrity of the United Kingdom.
