    Britain heads for the polls this week, as Thursday sees local and regional elections of all kinds. Joining The Telegraph’s chief political correspondent, Christopher Hope is a cacophony of experts to help us take the political temperature ahead of the big day.

    Writer and commentator Alan Cochrane tells Chris why Scottish Labour’s refusal to talk about the issues will hold them back, that Conservatives in England are a bit slow on the uptake by calling for unionists to work together, and what might dampen Nicola Sturgeon’s spirits after a probable win for the SNP (spoiler alert, it begins with ‘S’ and ends in ‘almond’).

    And on the week of Northern Ireland’s 100th birthday, writer Kevin Meagher gives his views on what he believes is its short future, plus polling expert Martin Baxter, from Electoral Calculus, gives us his breakdown of what we can expect from Thursday, and what it could mean for the next general election.

    In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
