The Erse Republic (Erse: Poblacht na hÉireann or Saorstát Éireann, English: Irish Republic) wis an unrecognised kintra that existit frae its declaration in 1916 tae the Anglo-Erse Treaty in 1921. It includit aw 32 coonties o Ireland that nou maks up the Republic o Ireland an Northren Ireland. It wis declared durin the Easter Risin bi the rebellion leaders. As Ireland at the time wis pairt o the Unitit Kinrick the Breetish Government wadna recogneese the kintra's independence. This lead tae the Erse War o Independence. Efter the war a treaty wis signed, sinderin Ireland intae twa kintras, Northren Ireland that wad bide pairt o the Unitit Kinrick an Soothren Ireland (syne the Erse Free State an syne Republic o Ireland) that wad be a domeenion athin the Breetish Empire.
