Ireland is an island located in the Atlantic Ocean, just west of Great Britain.  These two island nations are separated by St. George’s Channel and the Irish Sea.  Ireland has an area of 27,136 square miles.  Its mild climate, averaging 40 degrees in winter and 60 degrees in summer, plus its abundant rainfall, keep the countryside lush and green – thus the nickname “Emerald Isle.”

 

Agriculture is the country’s most important industry.  Ireland produces some of the world’s finest horses, cattle, and sheep.  Many farm families still live in one-story, thatched-roof, whitewashed cottages.  The potato is the main staple food of the people of Ireland.

 

Ireland has a varied and sometimes stormy past.  The potato famine in the 1840s caused the worst disaster in Irish history.  When blight destroyed the potato crop between 1845 and 1847, about 750,000 people died.  During that time, many emigrated to the United States.  Irish folk music, dances, and St. Patrick’s Day, named after the patron saint of Ireland, have become part of our culture.

 

In 1949, after many years of bitter conflict with Britain, the former Irish Free State was declared an independent republic and so recognized by the British Parliament.  Northern Ireland, which shares the island with the Republic of Ireland, remains under British rule.
