Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic; the second largest in the British Isles. Politically, it is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, in the northeast of the island. Irish culture has had a significant influence on other cultures, especially in the fields of literature. Alongside mainstream Western culture, a strong indigenous culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music, and the Irish language.

Éamon de Valera[]

Éamon de Valera was a prominent Irish statesman and political leader. He served several terms as head of government and head of state and had a leading role in introducing the 1937 Constitution of Ireland. De Valera's political beliefs evolved from militant Irish republicanism to strong social, cultural and fiscal conservatism. He has been characterised as having a stern and unbending, and also devious demeanour. His roles in the Civil War have also been interpreted as making him a divisive figure in Irish history. Biographer Tim Pat Coogan sees his time in power as being characterised by economic and cultural stagnation, while Diarmaid Ferriter argues that the stereotype of de Valera as an austere, cold, and even backward figure was largely manufactured in the 1960s and is misguided.

Dawn of Man[]

Stand up and rise Éamon de Valera, Taoiseach of Ireland. Following your ideals from a very young age, you always fought as a champion for the freedom of Ireland, from the days of the Easter Rising, where providence allowed you to become the only surviving leader, to presiding Ireland as an independent Republic and serving as Taoiseach. You led your nation in some of the most tumultuous times in Europe, skillfully navigating the politics of your era through cunning diplomacy and a staunch neutral stance while conflict rose elsewhere. Your stern demeanor may have brought detractors, but it doubtlessly shaped Ireland into what it is today.
