Northern Ireland is small and has about 1.8 million inhabitants. Belfast is the capital city. Northern Ireland was settled by Protestants from England and Scotland in the 17th and 18th centuries. The conflict between the Protestants and the original Catholic inhabitants led to the division of Ireland in 1922 into the Republic of Ireland, an independent country, and Northern Ireland which is part of the UK. According to the 2001 census, 53.1 % of the population in Northern Ireland comes from a Protestant background and 43.8 % from a Catholic background. There is still some conflict between Protestant and Catholic groups today.
