IRA, also called Provisional Irish Republican Army, is a paramilitary organization which fights for the end of British domination in Northern Ireland to realize the total independence of Ireland. In Ireland, many organizations tried to be called by the name of Irish Republic Army. The first organization to be called IRA was the army of the Irish Republic, which was founded in 1919, following the defeat of the Irish rebellions (Easter 1916 insurrection). After the independence war from 1919-1921, 26 counties were gathered in UDI Irish Republic and IRA was considered legitimate as its army.
