  3. 3. • Ireland is an Island to the north-west of continental Europe. • It is the third largest island in Europe. • Politically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers just under five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, which covers the remaining area and is located in the north-east of the island. • The population of Ireland is approximately 6.4 million. • Just under 4.6 million live in the Republic of Ireland and just over 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
  4. 4. • Ireland is situated in the Atlantic Ocean and separated from Great Britain by the Irish Sea. • Ireland resembles a basin—a central plain rimmed with mountains, except in the Dublin region. • The mountains are low, with the highest peak, Carrantuohill in County Kerry, rising to 3,415 ft (1,041 m). The principal river is the Shannon, which begins in the north-central area, flows south and southwest for about 240 mi (386 km), and empties into the Atlantic.
  5. 5. • The Irish War of Independence was a guerrilla war mounted against the British government in Ireland by the Irish Republican Army (IRA). It began in January 1919, following the Irish Republic’s declaration of independence, and ended with a truce in July 1921. The subsequent negotiations led to the Anglo-Irish Treaty, which ended British rule in most of Ireland and established the Irish Free State. However, six northern counties would remain under British rule.
  6. 6. Irish culture has had a significant influence on other cultures, especially in the fields of literature and, to a lesser degree, science and education. Alongside mainstream Western culture, a strong indigenous culture exists, as expressed for example through Gaelic games, Irish music, and the Irish language. The culture of the island has also many features shared with Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing and golf.
