Christianity is the island’s largest religion, having more followers than any other religion in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. A major book by Robin Bury, Buried Lives: The Protestants of Southern Ireland, recounts in detail many of the personal stories of Protestants affected by the lawlessness against them, including the numerous murders, disappearances, evictions, intimidation, arson, land seizures, looting and boycotting, and tells a sad story of the clear sectarian nature of often unreported systematic ethnic cleansing in the Irish Republic. Republic of Ireland: Since the days of St. Patrick proselytizing in Ireland during the 5th century, Catholicism has played a key role in Irish culture and history.

They remember the inflexible position of the author of the Irish Constitution, Eamonn De Valera, who said in 1918 that the “rock of Ulster Unionism must be blasted out of [the Nationalists’] path”, and who told Chamberlain in 1938 that if Ulster stood in the way of the attainment of Irish unity, then “the coercion of Northern Ireland would in all circumstances be justifiable”. As the 1920s progressed, the anti-Protestant sectarianism of the new State increased. A memorable instance was the attempt in 1925 to outlaw divorce – which the poet and playwright W.B. Nor was he a Roman Catholic. Yeats (1865-1939), who was then a member of the Irish Senate, described as “a measure which a minority of this nation considers to be grossly offensive”.

The EU is illegally interfering by tempting Northern Ireland with keeping its full EU membership on condition that it abandons the UK to become part of the Republic of Ireland; but Brussels must be totally ignorant of history or – to use the phrase which it disdainfully applied to Theresa May – must itself be living in another galaxy. The map records that other British tribes such as the Pretani, from which the term ‘Briton’ is derived, constituted the dominant population in both Ulster and northern Britain in these ancient times.

(8) Many of them included disbanded members of the former Royal Irish Constabulary, British ex-servicemen, and civilians loyal to the British regime in Ireland. The Irish Government has stubbornly refused to acknowledge the historical truth that the Ulster Scots, not the Irish, were the original inhabitants of Ulster. Although “the ice has melted” now, southern Protestants also came under pressure due to the Troubles. As the EU tries to meddle in Northern Ireland during the Brexit process, many victimhood myths about Irish history and religion need to be strongly countered.

When the Island was partitioned in 1921, the six Counties of Northern Ireland remained part of the United Kingdom to be governed until 1972 by what was called “a Protestant Parliament for a Protestant people”. The establishment of the Irish Free State and the end of the union between southern Ireland and Great Britain, who were the main protagonists in Protestantization of Ireland, is one of the main reasons protestant population declined significantly. This is double nonsense: the original faith of Ireland was the pure, unadulterated Christianity preached by St. Patrick in the 5th century – Roman Catholicism was not known in Ireland until the 12th century; and those who came to the Island from Scotland and northern England during the ‘Plantation’ were the descendants of the original inhabitants of Ulster, expelled by the Irish invaders in the third century and returning to their rightful homeland. The great tragedy of the Irish has been their failure to recognise that it was not the British, but Roman Catholicism, posing as their liberator, that dragged them into centuries of spiritual servitude, social deprivation, superstition and poverty. Christianity in Ireland dates back to the 5th century and it is thought to have emerged through the interaction with the Roman Britain. Many more were murdered before they could manage to escape.

The Report of the United Protestant Congress of 1922 (p. 102) puts the paradox succinctly: “It was a Pope who first robbed Ireland of her independence, and […] an English [Roman Catholic] invader who was the first to establish in Ireland the supremacy of Rome.” The Nationalists’ concept of ‘history’, fantasised by the rich Gaelic imagination and fused with the superstitions of the Roman Catholic Church, obscured historical truth and shrouded it in an aura of mystery and mysticism which was repeated so often that it came to be believed. The next logical step was the Republic’s infamous 1937 Constitution, personally drafted by a fanatical Roman Catholic Nationalist, Eamonn de Valera, in the spirit of a crusade against Protestantism. Followers of the Church of Ireland (Anglicans) number 115,611 (3% of the total population), Presbyterians 20,582, Methodists 10,033. The Irish were not the original inhabitants of Northern Ireland, St Patrick was not Irish, the original Irish Christianity was not Roman Catholic and the biggest ethnic cleansing in Ireland was that of Protestants from Southern Ireland.

The Protestants of Northern Ireland have not been deceived by the sham ‘removal’ of Articles 2 and 3 from the Irish Constitution following the 1998 Referendum in the Republic, which merely substituted a claim of nationality for a claim of territory and jurisdiction, and even provided for the alteration to be rescinded should circumstances require it.

Dr. FitzGerald’s subsequent ludicrous image of Southern Protestants as a “privileged minority” needs to be rectified by the accurate description given by Jack White in his book Minority Report (1975): “a minority without privilege”. In his autobiography All in a Life (1991), former Irish Prime Minister Garret FitzGerald wrote: “If I were a Northern Protestant today, I cannot see how I could be attracted to getting involved with a State that is itself sectarian. On 6 August 2015 even the Republic’s own Minister of Education, Ruairi Quinn, called for the ending of this monopoly, pointing out that the country has already been found by the United Nations human rights bodies to be in breach of undertakings and treaties which the Irish State signed voluntarily. Two of his close associates made memorable pronouncements on Ulster’s Protestant population: O’Duffy (President of the United Ireland Party and later Chief of Staff of the official Southern forces), said: “Give them the lead [leash or whip]”; and Corry: “Let poison gas be used on them.” (9).

The vicious campaign of lies, terrorist violence and denigration perpetrated against Ulster’s Protestant Unionist majority during the last decade of the 20th century was part of the Vatican’s plan for its envisaged Roman Catholic Europe.
