Why were Protestants in Ireland pro-British rather than pro-Irish when came to issue of Irish independence?

They were planted in Ireland by the British, and were given their lands and their positions by the British. It's really not very complex.

Because that's where their Protestantism came from.
In Ireland, the natives were Catholic when the British fought them. The British were Anglican Protestants.
Politically, that continues to hold true today.

They’re traitors and it goes to show that multiculturalism is a complete sham. The british empire deserves to burn for what they did to Europe and the world.
