Independence Day in Ireland

Posted by Ere on July 05, 2011 at 13:33:36:

On what date does anyone know in 1949 did Ireland gain its Independence from Britain.

I had to look up the Reason....for the 4th of July Celebrations in the States,I never really Knew the full story .

First Ireland

In what year did Ireland gain its independence from Britain.
The official answer to this is 1949, but the separation was more of an evolution.
The land which makes up Ireland was partitioned on 3 May 1921. In 1922 the Irish Free State was made a dominion within the British Commonwealth, which came with a previously unrealized level of sovereignty. A new constitution in 1937 renamed the state as Ireland, and it began operating with increasing separation from the Commonwealth. In 1949 it became a completely sovereign nation, separate from both England and Wales.

Second America

In what year did Americia gain Independance from Britain........
* Independence Day July 4th.............1776 *
On July 4, 1776, they claimed their independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" so they can begin their American Dream.
The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate that freedom and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings. Through the Internet we are learning about and communicating with people of different nations, with different languages and different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations.
