Synopsis

Ireland by

The World in Focus series provides an up-to-date view of individual countries around the world. It includes discussion of the major challenges facing each country now and in the future. This book gives a real insight into life in Ireland, an ancient land with a history steeped in folklore and legend. The country is well-known for its dramatic green landscapes and is often called the 'Emerald Isle'. The island was under British control until 1921, when it was split into two parts. The six counties of Northern Ireland remained part of the UK, while the 26 southern counties became the fully independent Republic of Ireland in 1949. In 1973 Ireland became a member of the European Union, and since that time the country has boomed, becoming one of the wealthiest nations in Europe.
