GUEST,Annraoi Northern Ireland - anthem? (73* d) RE: Northern Ireland - anthem? 24 Mar 02


Tam,
Please try to get it right! "Britain" is composed of two countries, Wales and England.
"Great Britain" came into being with the assimilation of Scotland into Britain, thus making it a unit of three countries.
In the year of 1801, the absorbtion of Ireland under the terms of the "Act of Union" gave rise to the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland".
After the Treaty of 1921, this "United Kingdom" was reduced to "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland", the which it remains today.
Ali Kiwi, if my memory serves me right, the occasion happened, but I am open to correction, in Canada. In any case, what is *not* open to dispute is that "Danny Boy" was sung spontaneously by Dr. Seán Donnelly, the medico looking after the Irish boxers.
Annraoi
