Northern Ireland , part of the United Kingdom , lying in the northeastern quadrant of the island of Ireland , on the western continental periphery often characterized as Atlantic Europe. Northern Ireland is sometimes referred to as Ulster , although it includes only six of the nine counties which made up that historic Irish province.

In proximity to Scotland and to sea channels leading to England and Wales , Northern Ireland has long witnessed generations of newcomers and emigrants, including Celts from continental Europe and Vikings , Normans , and Anglo-Saxons . In the 17th century, the period of the so-called Ulster plantation, thousands of Scottish Presbyterians were forcibly resettled and English military garrisons built, arrivals that would institutionalize the ethnic, religious, and political differences that eventually resulted in violent conflict.

The capital is Belfast , a modern city whose historic centre was badly damaged by aerial bombardment during World War II . Once renowned for its shipyards—the Titanic was built there—Belfast has lost much of its industrial base. The city—as with Northern Ireland’s other chief cities Londonderry (known locally and historically as Derry) and Armagh —is graced with parks and tidy residential neighbourhoods. More handsome still is the Northern Irish countryside—green, fertile, and laced with rivers and lakes, all of which have found lyrical expression in the nation’s folk and artistic traditions.
