it affected northern Ireland in such a way that catholics and Protestants where actually brought together. they both wanted Ireland to stay as a whole; obviously for different reasons. unionists wanted Ireland to remain part of the UK, but nationalists and republicans wanted to be independent Britain.
for this reason many civil wars broke out.

The partition of Ulster from the Republic wreaked devastating havoc on the six counties.  The territory was, until very recently, politically unstable, financially dependent upon Great Britain, and socially divided.  Was the original division a bad solution.  I do not believe so, we got 32 counties free, and now the British have seen the stupidity of occupying a land very different from their own (not ignoring their on-going issues in Scotland and Wales), and are working with the Catholic North Irish, these things are getting much better.  
Economically, the country is healthier.  Politically, (if Britain would quit suspending the bloody N. Irish parliament) the country is active, and both Catholics and Protestants are working to revive and save their country.
