(Irish: Éire; Ulster Scots: Airlann) is the third
largest island in Europe . It lies to the northwest of
Continental Europe with the island of Great Britain lying
to the east. Politically it is divided into the Republic
of Ireland, a sovereign state occupying five-sixths of
the island, and Northern Ireland, a part of the United
Kingdom, occupying the northeastern sixth of the island.
The name 'Ireland' derives from the name Ériu
(in modern Irish, Éire) with the addition of the
Germanic word 'land'.
Overall, Ireland has a mild, but changeable, climate all year. The
island experiences few weather extremes. The warmest recorded air
temperature was 33.3°C (91.94°F) at Kilkenny Castle, County
Kilkenny on 26 June 1887. The coldest air temperature was -19.1°C
(-2.38°F) at Markree Castle, County Sligo on 16 January 1881.
The climate is typically insular, and as a result of the moderating
moist winds which ordinarily prevail from the Atlantic, it is of
a temperate nature, avoiding the extremes in temperature of many
other global areas sharing similar latitudes.
temperatures in the island vary from -4°C (min) to
11°C (max) in January, and 9°C (min) to 23°C
(max) in July.
