Let's keep learning about the countries in Europe!

Last time we learned about England.

Next up is Ireland.

Ireland is an island right next to England,
and even though it it one island, it is split into two countries:
The Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland.

Ireland is known for some of it's wonderful castles like Killkenny castle

Many people believe that a stone called the Blarney Stone gives anyone who kisses it
great skill in talking with people, so many people travel to kiss the blarney stone.

One symbol for good luck of the Irish people is the Shamrock.
