Known as a country which is part of the UK, but called "The Province" (also called a few other things!).

Thatcher fought desperately to fend off the prospect of joint-sovreignty in the 80s over it with the Republic in the south.

Just an annoying space of place which if put up to referendum, Britain would probably give over to the Republic! Nothing to offer by way of wealth or culture - it just exists.

Plus I'm just rambling to vent out frustations over nothing in particular and taking it out on N Ireland (!)

Noun: A distinct political unit, for all intents and purposes a country in its own right, located at the top north-east corner of the island of Ireland, comprised of six of the nine counties of Ulster.

Also known as God's Own Country or God's Chosen Six Counties, generically as Ulster or the Province, and most often shortened in literature to Norn Iron. A little country of a mere 1.5 million people, where job opportunities and social cohesion are so absent that most of the population drinks heavily and hates everyone else.

Vodka is cheap here, as is beer, thank god.

Northern Ireland contains everything that is good about the island of Ireland. The Northern Irish people have a dark self-deprecating sense of humour. We also beat England in 2005 in a football match and we'll never let them forget it.

Lots of people in Northern Ireland are inbred. Guinness tastes better up here, too.

Northern Ireland has many enemies in the wider world, but mostly they are just haters, jealous of Our Wee Country.
Foreigner : Northern Ireland? Never heard of it.
Me : It's fulla wankers mate. But it's home.

(popular football song)

Northern Ireland. The home of tatty bread and brown lemonade.

Northern Ireland, located north of Ireland and west of Scotland, also can be found far east of America. Is in the British Isles and is North-west of England.

A great place to be, if someone ever asks you where you are from, as soon as you say Northern Ireland they will be like. "Wow!! You're hot! Wanna come to my place later?" You be like; Sure... after I'm done with all the other babes!

The land of bowler hats, marching and orange sashes. Lets not forget drug dealing to fund arms purchases. Why fight over the place?
I say old man, can I walk past your house?

No, feck off, this is Northern Ireland.

Possibly the greatest place on earth, with friendly people, a colourful history and blood links to all around the world (mainly Canada, USA and Australia). Also called Ulster (as it includes 6 of Ulsters 9 counties), Our Wee Country, The North, N.I. and Norn Iron (Northern Ireland said with a big belfast accent).

Unfortunately some people in N.I. try to damage the country for various reasons, which sometimes gives the place a bad name.

N.I. has two main cities Belfast and Derry (officially Londonderry), a lough in the middle called Neagh, a second one called Erne. It has three main rivers, Foyle, Lagan and Bann. N.I. has many hills and mountains, three noteworthy ones being Slieve Donard, Slemish and Cavehill. N.I. also has the beautiful Giants Causeway, and is housed by many castles the most important being Carrickfergus Castle.
Carlsberg doesn't make countries, but if they did...

Northern Ireland is like the love child of Dublin and London.
