How is the Republic Of Ireland's independence movement viewed today in Britain?
What Independence Movement? I thought we'd left all of that behind us - unless you support Sinn Fein?
I recall this question being posted previously, and the answer is the same. The Republic of Ireland hasn't got an independence movement, because it is already a self governing sovereign state.
Eire has been independent since 1921 and that was the last time Eire was viewed as anything but independent. Are they now seeking a different kind of independence?
For most Brits, it really isn't thought about at all. The answer is that we think about it as much as the American war for Independence. Not a lot. The ROI is a great country and I hope to visit one day.
There is still tension between Ireland and England, but the Queen has helped to simmer the hatred that both countries feel towards each other. I went to Ireland 3 yrs. ago and it was a wonderful place to be. I would recommend going to Ireland as often as possible. Great food, great fun and really, really , really wonderful people. I can't wait to go back.
