Do “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland meet the threshold of a Civil War?

It would seem to me as though The Troubles tick each box of what we’d consider to be a civil war, yet in the UK at least, it’s not thought of that way.

The main players from each side would have held the same passport. There was a clear intent from one side to separate from the parent nation… the parent nation resisted this act. Weapons were fired, people died and much misery was produced.

Do The Troubles meet the standard of a civil war? If so, how and if not, why?
