    Ireland as a single entity pre dates Britains, Britain broke up after the death of Albion, Ireland had its high kings up until the dark ages. Britain was not a single nation itself until the union of the crowns in 1703 and almost had Union under Roman rule under a governor. Even then, under Norman (1541) later British rule up until 1918 Ireland was a single kingdom replacing the single Lordship(1198) over the entire Island, which is why it declared itself a republic. Ireland was therefore always a single state entity until 1918 with a slight break of 500 or so years. Article like this just prove UK politicians are qualified in Law and Politics ignoring history which in Ireland is far more important.
