The Northern Ireland region is made up from the six counties of Ulster that remained within the union. It has, over a period of time, developed its own parliamentary assembly and, in addition, a separate Department of Health.
Thankfully, "the troubles" and the sectarian divides which underpinned them for so long are finally passing into history, and are allowing the region to be seen for its genuine attractions.
It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and has a world heritage site at the Giant's Causeway (pictured).
A drumlin belt crosses the province and provides a landscape of rolling hills, while Lough Neagh is the largest inland lake in Europe.
The province boasts world-class golfing, sailing and hill-walking facilities. With two airports, Belfast is within easy reach of all regions of the UK.
