    Default When exactly WILL our day come?

    When do any of you think that a United Ireland will happen?
    It's just a matter of time, I'm sure, but when though?

    Opinions may be used.

    Well firstly I think the IRA will have to be decommissioned/disbanded. They always held back the cause of Irish unity anyway by terrorising innocent (and not-so-innocent) Unionists, so they'll have to go for starters.

    Secondly, it won't happen when Paisley is still alive.

    The above two are the main stumbling blocks at present, however once these two are overcome which will happen in time, I would be cautiously optimistic.

    If, when decades of terrorism and violence are finally put to rest, leaders decide to risk more decades of terrorism and violence then it will happen

    About 2050. There should be an Irish nationalist majority by then.

    If you've got to wait for the demographics to work through, I guess it'll be about twenty years.

    That's a must. Not just because I don't like the IRA, but because unionists will never accept it. They have to feel that they've beaten or at the very least not lost to the IRA.
    The disbandment or at least disappearance of the IRA is also crucial for cross-border links to solidify. Over the past few years we've seen more and more cross-border organisations, initiaves and communities form. These kind of links are near to impossible to keep in times of violence.

    The day we've got an full united Ireland is probably a long, long way away. As for the immediate future, the two regions will continue to grow into each other so that we'll have a united Ireland in all but name.

    Ever thought about what'll happen to our taxes when the Brits stop subsidising Northern Ireland, and we've gotta foot that huge bill every year.....

    Yes, and I consider it a financial penance for Lynch "standing idly by".

    As the UN, US and EU also stood idly by I see no reason why they should not contribute as well.
