Education in Ireland

- The island of 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. Just under 4.6 million live in the Republic of Ireland (Ireland), which is home to not only stunning landscapes and rugged geography, but also a rich, historical culture in many fields, perhaps most notably literature. This makes it an even more ideal location to study the English language. Alongside more mainstream Western culture, a strong indigenous culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music, and the Irish language.
