    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to the east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea and the St. George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. In 2016, 4.8 million people lived in the Republic of Ireland and 1.8 million in Northern Ireland.

    Ireland’s climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and therefore very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northern region, although summers are cooler than those of mainland Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The culture of the island shares many characteristics with that of Great Britain, including the English language and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing and golf.
