Parque ecológico em Cork, na Irlanda.


Tribos celtas chegaram à ilha da Irlanda entre 600 e 150 aC. Escandinavos começaram a invadir a Irlanda no final do século 8, mas foram derrotados em 1014. Invasões inglesas começaram no século 12 e deram origem a muitos conflitos pelos séculos seguintes.

Em 1949, a Irlanda retirou-se da Comunidade Britânica e aderiu à Comunidade Europeia, em 1973. A Irlanda do Norte continua a fazer parte do Reino Unido.
