The Republic Of Ireland
As you can see by the Irish General Election Odds Sinn Fein is in poll position to be the largest party both North and South of the border.
By the Nationalists seeing this level of this support in the South there will be momentum from politicians in the republic.
There are different versions of a United Ireland being mooted in the south, but it seems many favour Northern Ireland uniting with Ireland rather than staying in the United Kingdom.
United Ireland History
Ireland was partitioned in 1921 and Northern Ireland became part of the United Kingdom.
Nationalists who want reunification of the island have opposed this ever since its formation.
The 1998 Good Friday agreement acknowledged the legitimacy of the desire for a united Ireland while stating that it could be achieved only with the consent of a majority of the people of the six counties in the North.
