In GCSE History students will look at the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland between 1968-1998. One topic that is covered is the divisions between Catholics and Protestants which bought the Troubles about.
The so-called "Troubles" in Northern Ireland began in 1968, and continued thereafter for nearly 30 years. The background to them is the partition of Ireland in 1921 and the resultant Protestant state. This caused divisions between Protestants and a disgruntled Catholic minority, who resented the numerous forms of discrimination which followed.
