    Because irish people define themselves as being anti-english. If England stayed catholic then it would have been the irish who would have turned protestant.

        That’s much more recent though. Scots have become more deranged in their English hatred as time has gone on, in an attempt to win victim points (pretending they were oppressed and not integral oppressors in the British empire themselves).

      English projection, Irish have had a distinct identity going back to the early Iron Age.
      The English are a mutt formation which at best began in the migration era but really began in 1200 when Normans reached peak assimilation and England became a frankensteins monster racially and culturally.

    It was more civilised and had a larger educated class.
    Protestantism was already promoted in Scotland when it was still outlawed by the King making for a lrger support base.
    In Ireland the reformation was state enforced and seen as a political tool of suppresion thus increasing the social stigma with converting.

      The Scots had been very leery of the papacy since the Avignon debacle, and when a former priest, John Knox arrived spouting Calvinism, the country was ripe for the plucking. The Presbyterian church was so anti- Catholic that Christmas was relegated to being a Popish plot

      The irish were a subject nation that didnt have a hot protestant queen banging the King and influencing him

            if we ask the question why isn't ireland protestant, the assumption is why in the time frame of England going protestant up until the present. Why has it never switched.

        Scotland became Protestant separately from England, hence why Scotland is Presbyterian and distinctly not Anglican/Episcopalian

        Portugal most definitely was not more advanced than Germany, the Portuguese would hire German/Low Countries' gunsmiths to manufacture a lot of their cannons. German cities were advanced centers of manufacturing and learning for centuries by the 1500s. Portugal had excellent sailors and all, but Portuguese manufacturing outside of ships has always been surprisingly backwards and Portugal was not very urbanized.
        France did in fact have an extensive Protestant movement, they were simply crushed and slowly exiled by the government.

        Real answer: scotland had good relations with England while Ireland had bad relations with England. If it was the other way around, Scotland would be Catholic (like now Scotland is pro EU) and Ireland would be Protestant. The cause for this is that Irish are celtic (so more different ethnicity) and Irish are on an island (harder to be influenced directly).

        Being Celtic has frick all to do with converting or not. Poland was a Slavic country that went Catholic despite being antagonistic with Catholic Germans. Likewise, Slavic Bohemians went Protestant alongside Germans.

        they're basically the same ethnicity now. you had the original inhabitants and then the germanics/nordics, the romans, and normans. ireland was more of a holdout of the original people in the area. the original people in britain got assimilated into the borg and then convinced that ireland was lesser. the original people were made up or different groups, but they were more closely related peoples. it's not like they were all friends, but the animosity stemmed from them surviving longer and then also the religious differences. the whole irish are subhuman garbage was something developed to help control the place.

    Holy mother of ESL. However in short the only nation on the British isles that went full Protestant for theological reasons was Scotland which went Presbyterian. England only went for political reasons and the actual true protestants in the church of England left mainline Anglicanism (which is just catholicism without the pope) and formed Congregationalism and Methodism. Ireland had no unified King or authority to enforce Protestantism and besides Scotland there was actually very little interest among the peasantry to convert away from Catholicism. It also didn't help that Ireland was incredibly rural, and not mercantile like Germany or Scotland meaning Ireland lacked the core demographic of pro-protestants.

    Ireland had the Insular-Christian church that got stomped hard by Catholics.

    When Henry converted some did, but most were still true Catholics.

    Ireland during the Reformation was overwhelmingly illiterate peasants on territory de facto run by tribal chieftains. Highland Scotland was slow to convert for the same reason.
