Because of all the Americans who have never seen Ireland, and romanticize about the place because their great-grandfather had red-hair.

My husband and I learned everything we needed to know about Ireland by watching The Quiet Man, several times.

In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

What did it gain them?

Dublin before independence had nearly the worst slums in Europe. After independence, and particularly from the 1930s when public housing was built in Crumlin, that was mostly cleared. Ireland is now quite prosperous, better than the third rate Wales or it was fated otherwise to become, fishingand shooting estates for sportsmen, without the coal fuelled industry. The apostasy (two thirds or so) is hardly unexpected, one of the many poisoned fruits of the Great Apostasy, that Montini (rigged election like our wonderful Pope) rigged Masonic Council / V2 and that pretended Montini Mass.

Yes, why single out Ireland.  Vatican II has destroyed Catholic nations right across the world.
Irish piety in the US laid very effective groundwork for this "success" of the mid-20th century revolution.

Good article. It was Collins, acting on behalf of the IRA, who accepted the deal splitting Ulster off from the Republic. He said at the time it was a question of half a loaf being better than none. Many have never forgiven him. Some people think that's why he was assassinated.
