No . Spain became one country when the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon unified to drive the Moors out of Andalusia. Long long before the CW

Catalunya included Perpignan up to the late 1700's.

What is now Spanish Catalonia was incorporated into Spain after the wars of succession in the 1700s. The remaining French part (including Perpignan) became part of France.

There's a Kerryman runs a bar near Placa Catalunya describes the Catalans as Cavan people with Cork sense of identity.
Its pretty much spot on.

Anyway so far there's a lot more flags, shouting and Guardia Civil around the place the last couple of days. If it goes tits up I have frozen rashers and a bottle of Tanora to keep my spirits up on the way to Andorra.

To hell with them if they can't take a joke.

Is it the original or new recipe Tanora?
