I guess it has, but there are still imbalances. One of my neighbors is part Irish and he goes over there to see family once every few years. He showed me a video of a Belfast bus tour he took. That peace wall is a bit of a shock to see, almost like the Iron Curtain Ireland style.
In one part of the video as the bus is coming away from Belfast castle, it passes between two state-funded primary schools. The tour guide is describing how one of the schools is Catholic and the other Protestant, one each side of the road. One of the schools is a fine old Victorian style building set in nice grounds with well kept lawns. The other school is comprised of several pre-fab structures in a pot-holed tarmac yard.

Can anyone guess which school belongs to which religious group?
