The local area guide to living in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland is the smallest of the UK’s major economies, meaning that house prices and living costs are lower than average. Its economy has historically been industrial, particularly in Belfast, which is renowned for its ship building trade. However, in recent years, the service and tourism industries have seen a rise. Technology companies have also been attracted to the area of late, thanks to high standards of education and government subsidies.
The country has a turbulent history, dating back to 1998’s Good Friday Agreement. However, its history is also a rich one, with notable residents including Seamus Heaney, C.S. Lewis, John Butler Yeats and a number of sports icons such as Eddie Irvine and George Best.
It also has a fascinating folklore background, with much of the country’s unique landscape, shaped by the vast ice sheets that covered the country in the Ice Age, attributed to myths and legends. For example, the lake Lough Neagh is said to have formed when the giant Finn McCool scooped out a handful of land to throw at a Scottish giant.
Information about the local residents
Northern Ireland has a population of approximately 1,801,800 – which is the equivalent to some major European cities. The bulk of the population is largely split between the five major counties: Belfast (which houses 15.5% of residents), Lisburn (6.6%), Derry (5.9), Newry and Mourne (5.5%), and Craigavon (5.1%).
It’s a young population, with nearly 21% of residents aged 15 or under, and around 98% of residents would describe themselves as white. Within that, 48% are White British, 28% Irish and 29% Northern Irish.
Unemployment rates have decreased a little over recent years, last recorded at 7.8%. There is quite a significant difference between the genders, with 5.3% of women but 10.1% of men being unemployed.
School years in Northern Ireland are decided by a child’s age on July 1st, and students are required to stay in school until they reach 16 – at which point they can stay on and take A levels or leave.
Primary school children will follow the Northern Ireland Curriculum, while secondary school pupils will study for GCSE qualifications, as set by either the Council for the Curriculum or a UK examination board. English and Maths are required GCSEs, much like in the rest of the UK, and so is Religious Studies, which is unique to Northern Ireland.
Primary and secondary education is overseen by the Department of Education, and controlled at a local level by education and library boards, of which there are five. Most of these schools are protestant, although there are 533 schools controlled by the Roman Catholic church. All schools are open to children of all faiths, although parents may have a preference as to the type of school a child attends. Around 21 state schools and two independent schools are taught in Irish medium, which means they use Gaelic as their primary language.
For higher education, the two most popular options are the University of Ulster and the Queen’s University of Belfast.
Northern Ireland operates across six main motorways, and there are regular intercity train services that are operated by Northern Ireland Railways. There are also services that run from Belfast to Dublin in the Republic of Ireland.
For international travel, Northern Ireland has three airports and two seaports. Larne and Belfast run regular passenger ships to Great Britain, while Belfast International, George Best Belfast City and City of Derry airport operate regular flights to European and UK destinations.
The most popular towns for shopping are Belfast and Derry, which are also areas that are packed with entertainment options. Belfast is home to the floating museum, the Belfast Barge, while Derry features the Tower Museum.
For entertainment, there’s the Grand Opera House in Belfast and the famous Lyric Theatre, as well as Ulster Hall. Live music can be found at Féile an Earraigh traditional music festival, and the eclectic Festival of Fools. You can also sample live theatre at a number of theatres and performance venues, such as The Playhouse in Derry.
