The UK responded quickly, sending a task force to Ulster, which had stayed loyal to the United Kingdom. From here, the British rapidly moved south as their air force destroyed any Irish resistance. Delayed by guerrilla fighting, the British task force arrived in Dublin and after a day of street figthing, captured Kenny. With a clear leader, the IRA splintered and the war was essentially over. British troops remained on the island for two years until the last of the IRA leaders had been captured and guerrilla warfare subsided.
In the late 1990s, the British began to relax their rule over Ireland, and granted the island increasing self-governance. Irish Prime Minister Liam Neeson has done much to keep the peace between the Catholics and Protestants, and today Ireland has been granted near independence as part of the Imperial Commonwealth.
