Historical overview of Ireland
Gaelic Ireland emerged in the 1st century. From the 50th century onward, the island was Christianized. At the same time, England claimed sovereignty following the Anglo-Norman invasion of the 12th century. But the English rule didn't extend until the Tudor conquest of the 16th–17th century that caused colonization by settlers.
In the early 20th century, the partition of the isle was led by the war of independence. The war made the Irish a free state. However, later, Northern Ireland became a part of the UK while the Republic of Ireland joined the EEC in 1973.
