So-called northern Ireland is not a Nation at all - full stop. Ireland is the Nation you foreigners are planted in.

Derry Down, Antrim, Armagh. Fermanagh and Tyrone are merely 6 counties in the 9 county province of Ulster - which is obviously in Ireland.

As for "völkisch (gaelic) Nationalism" - get this into your thick Unionist head.
We Irish are Gaels, and our country is named in our stead. We are a distinct people - and our country is one of the oldest in the world.

Our Gaelic political and social order, and associated culture, originated/evolved in Ireland during prehistoric times - and still dominates to this day, despite all the foreign interference.

Crumb has been known to have cited the six counties of NE Ireland as a COUNTRY sir...…..I sh1t you not. :ROFLMAO:

I think once the Irish nation starting speaking English they became "West Brits". Eireann became Ireland.
N.I Unionists are West Brits, where as post the 1880's and Gaelic revival the Southern Irish became "Irish".
Easy to understand??? LOL
