1949-1969 since 1990






1969-1990



In 1973 Ireland joined the European Community. For years the country benefitted from EC aid for underdevelopped regions; lately the island nation has seen an economic boom and became a donor nation within the EU instead.
In 1975 the situation in Northern Ireland deteriorated dramatically; the Irish government has actively supported attempt to resolve the situation peacefully, and undertook measures to end terrorist activity.
