3 Ireland is an island to the north-west of continental Europe. To its east is the larger island of Great Britain, from which it is separated by the Irish Sea. It is the third- largest island in Europe and the twentieth-largest island on Earth

5 Northern Ireland was created in 1921, when Ireland was partitioned (separated) between Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland by an act of the British parliament. Unlike Southern Ireland, which would become the Irish Free State in 1922, the majority of the population of Northern Ireland wanted to remain within the United Kingdom. 4
