    Ireland had and still has its Celtic culture and festivals. When part of the British Empire ('The Plantation', mid 1600s), Protestants were encouraged to settle in Northern Ireland at the expense of the indigenous population. Although one island, Northern Ireland is legally part of the UK and we in the republic gave up any claim to it in a recent referendum. Most people in the Republic of Ireland don't want an United Ireland if it means dispossessing others. Your 'Greater Israel' is a religious ideology. Much of which is not backed up by archeology of historical facts. Now all parties are involved in Government and former IRA terrorists are in Government (e.g. Martin McGinness). But there the differences end. Israel is still stealing Palestinian land, demolishing houses, burning olive groves all in violation of International laws and norms. This has to stop for there to be peace. P.S. The potato famine was a desperate time in Irish history. The one variety of potato failed, hundreds of thousands died and many more emigrated to form the diaspora.
