The Republic of Ireland is a country located in northwestern Europe. The capital of Ireland is Dublin. Ireland shares its island with Northern Ireland, which is a part of the United Kingdom. Surrounding the island are the Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, Saint George's Channel, and the Irish Sea. The area of Ireland is 70,273 square kilometers (27,133 square miles), and its population is estimated at over 4.5 million.

Ireland History
Ireland was inhabited by numerous native tribes in its early history. The Vikings invaded beginning in the 9th century, and eventually establish settlements along the island's coast. The Normans invaded beginning in 1169, soon taking control and establishing a feudal system in the country. The Normans and the Gaelic Irish intermixed, and English customs took over until the 15th century, when Irish culture had a resurgence. Ireland joined the United Kingdom in 1801. Civil unrest led to the war of independence ending in 1922, which caused the partition of Ireland into the Republic of Ireland, which gradually separated from the United Kingdom, and Northern Ireland, which remained part of the United Kingdom.

Ireland Economy
Ireland is a highly developed country, and is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, despite being a very poor country in its history. Major industries include pharmaceuticals, computers and technology, agricultural products, and natural resources including zinc, lead, aluminia, gypsum, and limestone. Unlike neighboring Northern Ireland and the rest of Great Britain who use the British Pound as their currency, the Republic of Ireland is on the euro, and was one of its founding member states.
