The Irish Republican Army, also referred to as the Anti-Treaty IRA or the Irregular IRA, was a paramilitary faction in Ireland, deriving from the original Irish Republican Army who during the Irish Civil War were opposed to the Anglo-Irish Treaty. It claimed to be the legitimate continuation of the Irish Republican Army founded in 1916 during the Easter Rising, a claim contested by the pro-Treaty National Army of the new Irish Free State. They were opposed to the British Empire controlling the six counties in Ulster ("northern Ireland"). Notable actions included a campaign against the British Empire during World War II and the Border Campaign of the 1950s.
