Ireland/Northern Ireland

Given that Ireland and Northern Ireland are not related (and Irish citizens are not British), we should either remove the British category from this one or separate Irish and North Irish characters (possibly just list North Irish characters as being from the United Kingdom). --GrnMarvl14 16:30, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

From wikpedia: People from Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom, are British citizens. They are also entitled to Irish citizenship by birth under the 1998 Belfast Agreement between the British and Irish governments, which provides that: it is the birthright of all the people of Northern Ireland to identify themselves and be accepted as Irish or British, or both, as they may so choose, and accordingly the two governments confirm that their right to hold both British and Irish citizenship is accepted by both Governments and would not be affected by any future change in the status of Northern Ireland.
So if I understand correctly, the inhabitants of Ireland and Northern Ireland are both Irish. But you're right, not all Irish are British, so put them in that category was incorrect, so I remove it. --Harasar 17:00, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
