Map of Ireland

Ireland (Irish: Éire) is a sovereign state located in northwestern Europe. The modern state occupies five-sixths of the island of Ireland, which was partitioned in 1921. It is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and by the Irish Sea to the east, and shares a land border with Northern Ireland (part of the United Kingdom) to the north. Ireland has one of the fastest growing and youngest populations in Western Europe, at 4.2 million. The capital is Dublin. A 1948 act provides that the term Republic of Ireland may be used as “the description of the State.”
