Ireland has had a long history as an island nation that was part of the British Empire for centuries until 1921 when it achieved independence from Britain following a War or Independence (1916-21). This period saw major political upheaval including several civil wars and armed conflicts before finally settling into stability under Éamon de Valera’s Fianna Fail party which governed from 1932 to 1948. Since then, all governments have been formed by coalitions between two main parties; Fine Gael / Labour Party/ Green Party on one side, Fianna Fail on the other side.
