Why would I be pulling your leg Piotr?  I was taught (likely with wrong information) that Ireland was part of the United Kingdom.  If the south (Ireland) seceded from the United Kingdom, then it must be an autononymous region.   As an American, I'm new at this stuff.

Greenland and the Faroe Islands are autonomous (self-governing) territories within the Kingdom of Denmark. You could call them semi-independent.

As for "Southern Ireland", better known as the Republic of Ireland ... Gerry, are you kidding us?
