Ireland is an island situated in the most westerly point in Europe, sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Irish Sea to the east.
The island of Ireland constitutes the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland, and the 6 counties of Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. The Republic and Northern Ireland constitute one continuous landmass.
The Irish language is, constitutionally, the official first language of the state, although the majority of Irish people speak English as their first language. There are pockets of Irish speaking areas, called Gaeltachts, mainly along the western seaboard and the southwest, but there are still some communities remaining who are monolingual in Irish alone. All road signs and official documents are presented in both languages in Ireland.
