Why was England so interested in conquering Ireland?

what they did cannot be denied.
and thats why this is far far far from over.

"far far far from over" -- What do you propose?  Eye for an eye?  Go over and shoot *their* innocent lads?  No, that's not Christian. 

Besides, methinks the barrier to Irish unification isn't anyone in England so much as the actual Ulster Orangemen up there who don't want to reunite.  I don't see anything short of their conversion to Catholicism that would permit a peaceful, happy unification.  I mean, otherwise either the Republic is going to become more Protestant (and thus live up to the orange in its tricolor -- bleh, give me the St. Patrick's Cross any day over a flag with orange in it) or else those Prots aren't going to rejoin the Republic.
