About Ulster

Ulster is one of the four provinces of Ireland that were part of the country before the country split into four parts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you live in six of the nine counties that make up Northern Ireland. The three other counties that make up the Republic of Ireland are in the other country.

Second only to Munster in size and second only to Leinster in population, it is one of Ireland's four traditional provinces. Belfast is the largest city in it. Ulster is different from the other provinces because it has a lot of Protestants. They make up almost half of the population. English is the main language, and Ulster English is the main dialect of English. A small group of people also speak Irish. There are Gaeltachta (Irish-speaking areas) in southern County Londonderry, the Gaeltacht Quarter in Belfast, and County Donegal; these three areas make up a quarter of the Gaeltacht population in Ireland. It is also spoken in Ulster-Scots. Lough Neagh, in the east, is the largest lake in the British Isles. Lough Erne, in the west, is one of the largest lake networks in the country. People live in the Mournes, Sperrins, Croaghgorms, and Derryveagh Mountains, which are the four main mountain ranges in the area

Ulster has been at the centre of the Gaelic world for a long time. This world was made up of Gaelic Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man at the time. A r ruirech, or "king of over-kings," is said to have been in charge of one of the fifths in ancient Ireland. It was one of the cige. It is named after the Ulaid overkingdom, which is in the east of the province. It was named after the Ulaid people. Airgalla and Ailech were the two other overkingdoms in Ulster, as well. It was after the Normans came to Ireland in the 12th century that the Anglo-Normans took over eastern Ulster and made it the Earldom of Ulster. It was in the late 14th century that most of Ulster was controlled by a group of people called the O'Neills. They claimed the title King of Ulster. In the end, Ulster became the province of Ireland that was the most Gaelic and the most independent. Its rulers tried to keep the English out, but they were defeated in the Nine Years' War (1594?1603). King James I then moved into Ulster with English-speaking Protestants from Great Britain. This was called the Plantation of Ulster, and it was done by King James. In the end, this led to a lot of Ulster's towns being built up. During the 1641 rebellion and the Armagh disturbances, Catholics and Protestants got into fights. With the rest of Ireland, Ulster became a part of the United Kingdom in the year of 1801. In the early 20th century, many Ulster Protestants were against moves toward Irish self-rule. This led to the Home Rule Crisis. This, as well as the Irish War of Independence that came after, led to the split of Ireland. When the United Kingdom split up, six counties in Ulster became Northern Ireland, a self-governing area inside the country. The rest of Ireland became the Irish Free State, which is now known as the Republic of Ireland.

Ulster has no official role in either state when it comes to local government. However, for ISO 3166-2:IE, Ulster only refers to the three counties of Cavan, Donegal, and Monaghan. These three counties are given the country code "IE-U." The name is also used by a lot of different groups, like cultural and sports organisations.
