After touring the Republic of Ireland, we are going to look at the other Ireland - called Northern Ireland. This part of the country has recently opened up for tourism after so many years of conflict and struggle. Basically, two provinces in the north of the island, Northern Ireland (capital Belfast) has a beautiful countryside and intriguing history. I will tell you the story of how King James I wanted to get rid of pesky Scots and others who did not agree with him and sent them to a forlorn part of Ireland - which no one wanted. These people were eager and industrious, and many of them became the foundation of America in the colonial and revolutionary period. We will also look at some of the cultural giants - W.B. Yeats and James Joyce - some Irish music and traditions.
