The counties of Northern Ireland existed as first-level local government divisions of Northern Ireland from its creation in 1921 until 1972, when they were replaced by 26 districts (later reduced to 11 in 2015). Northern Ireland consisted in six of the nine counties of the historical province of Ulster: Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry and Tyrone. Today the former counties exist only for historical and cultural purposes.
