    Hi Austy 216!!

    I think it would help us if you could include commas and full stops when you type out your sentences:-

    Why you confused?

    It like these England rules.

    Northern Ireland that were I from, England wouldn't let us speak our own language.
    Why are you confused?

    It is because the English rule Northern Ireland, where I am from, as they do not let us speak our own language.

    Which language were you taught to speak apart from English?

    If a government's policies in a country are wrong; it is those policies that are wrong, and not the citizens who live in that country. I feel that you should not condemn the English people as a whole, most of whom were not responsible for the English take over of Northern Ireland.

    I also agree with you, and think that the Irish should be left to rule their own country with their own money.

    I cannot comment on individual dates regarding Ireland's history, as I do not know them, but as I said before I hope the Irish get their country back.

    My father is Czech, but my mother's family came from County Mayo in Ireland.

    I have just been reading about Grace O'Malley, who was an Irish pirate with her own fleet of ships, and who also fought the English back in 1579. The English at that time had strong footholds in Dublin, Galway, Wexford and a few other ports, but, apart from that, the rest of Ireland was pretty much still under Irish control. I think at that time the Irish and the British were competing for Spanish trade.

    The Irish at that time also had their own laws, their own chiefs, their own family systems, which were clan systems.

    Grace O'Malley also received a royal pardon from Queen Elizabeth at that time. Grace O'Malley got that pardon not by groveling but by treating Queen Elizabeth as her equal, as it is said that she would not even curtsey each time she met the Queen.

    Also between 1846 and 1850 Ireland had that disastrous potato famine, which drastically affected the financial economy of Ireland at that time, when many people left Ireland.

    But, as I have already mentioned, I do not know any other noteable dates in Irish history.

    Could someone let Damian know what kind of reception foreign tourists receive when they visit pubs in the Czech Republic, and also on that same note, could anyone recommend any good pubs that particularly welcome foreign tourists, say for example in Prague?
