This is our project about Ireland. We hope you enjoy and understand it.

The little country highlighted in green is Ireland and this is the country we will tell you about. 

Ireland is quite small and Irish people think it shaped like a teddy bear (Look at the pictures above and below).

There are 32 counties in total in Ireland. Six of them are in Northern Ireland and the other 26 are in the Republic of Ireland.

The counties in the Republic are:
Donegal, Monaghan, Cavan, Kerry, Cork, Waterford, Claire, Tipperary, Limerick, Dublin, Meath, Kildare, Offaly, Carlow, Westmeath, Wexford, Wicklow, Kilkenny, Laois, Louth, Longford, Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo.

The counties in Northern Ireland are: Fermanagh, Antrim, Tyrone, Down, Armagh and Derry.

Ireland attracts many tourists every year. In Dublin people like to visit sights such as the Book of Kells at Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse, the Phoenix Park and its surroundings, some seaside resorts like Bray and Howth. Our favourite place in Dublin is the Zoo located in Phoenix Park. It has lots of different animals from all over the world and a great atmosphere.
