Ireland

Number of operating organisations shown in brackets

Ireland (Irish: ire; Ulster Scots: Airlann) is the third largest island in Europe[1] and the twentieth largest in the world.[2] It lies to the northwest of Continental Europe. It is surrounded by hundreds of islands and islets. To the east of Ireland, separated by the Irish Sea, is the island of Great Britain. Politically, the Republic of Ireland (also known simply as Ireland) covers five sixths of the island, with Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom, covering the remainder in the northeast. The name Ireland derives from Old Irish (in modern Irish, ire) with the addition of the Germanic word land. This word, from Proto-Celtic *Īwerjū, which also gave Middle Welsh Iwerd Irish Sea, originally meant fatness, in the sense of fertile.[3]
