Historically, due to geostrategic reasons, Ireland has been dominated by English, this stopped Ireland from becoming an autonomous nation for many years. Years of struggle and conflicts with England were the reason of Irish unhappiness; some of the reasons were; not to have a parliamentary voice, paying taxes to the crown, and to have the Catholic majority subjugated to the Protestant minority and British rule. Because of their struggle to free themselves from British subjugation, republicanism grew as an influential ideology of Irish liberation.
