Officially Northern Ireland has no national bird. Unoffically, the oystercatcher was selected to represent Ulster in 1961. However, The Republic of Ireland has the northern lapwing as its national bird and yet for all the controversy surrounding Ireland's sovereignty, birds have no regard for history, religion, politics or borders. So in the interest of furthing amity between all parties, we're going to see to see things from the bird's point of view, and regard both species as lesser and greater representatives of that province in Ireland that is part of the UK.
