Over 25 percent of Northern Ireland's population is Roman Catholic; about 23 percent is Presbyterian; about 18 percent belong to the Church of Ireland; the rest are members of other churches or of no stated denomination. Latin American postcolonial studies are seldom explored by those laboring in English departments. Her daughter Matilda (d. 1167), known as Empress Matilda from her first marriage to Emperor Henry V, was Henry I's legitimate heiress, but most of the English preferred to put a king on the throne and chose her cousin Stephen of Blois.

They lost 234 men, dead or wounded while just 5 rebels died. The first selection on this list, British writer Alexander McCall Smith’s 44 Scotland Street (2005)—the first book in a series of the same name—takes readers to a bustling bohemian street in Edinburgh’s New Town, specifically to building No. 44.

Even in minor movies like Frankie Go Boom (new to DVD and Blu-ray from Universal), newcomers like Chris O’Dowd and Charlie Hunnam are proving that UK names mean quality—or the suggestion of same.

A government press release claimed that only ‘medical and support’ personnel had been deployed, although it described the presence of ‘other support troops’. Others, perhaps less ‘popular’, include the argument that the Great Famine was a product of a deliberate British genocide (p. 163, p. 449), and the recurring diversion that the oppression of Northern Ireland’s Catholics found equivalence with the victims of the Nazis, Afro-Americans in the southern states of the US or those who suffered under apartheid in South Africa (p. 376, p. 450, p. 366, p. 83).

It survives, however, in the dialects of the West Country, part of Lancashire and some parts of Yorkshire. For the following three years, but especially from the middle of 1920 until the summer of 1921, both IRA insurgency and British repression, in what is now called the War of Independence , produced about 2,000 deaths in Ireland.
