This poetic name for Ireland as a whole evokes a picture of beauty and peace but there is this other face of Ireland, too, well known all over the world as the Irish Conflict. However, astonishing steps forward have been made over the last ten or so years towards a lasting peace . And the so-called Celtic Tiger years changed the image of the Republic of Ireland as the poorhouse of Europe to a modern and economically successful nation.  Find some very informative sources about Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Irish Conflict and the Peace Process, modern social problems and the Celtic Tiger years, but also Ireland's way into recession (2008) by clicking on one of the following links:
