Quiz: How well do you know the islands of Ireland?
We’re a small island surrounded by small islands.

IRELAND IS AN island nation, in more than one sense of the term.

Yes we’re a large piece of land that’s surrounded by water, but we’re also a bit mad for islands themselves, with dozens of offshore bits of land along our coast.

Some are better known than others, but each of them is equally part of the place we call home.

How well do you know them?
