  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Northern Ireland: Concern over food prices and supply as Brexit transition nears end” – below is their description.

    While the rest of the #UK will soon leave the European Union’s single market, Northern #Ireland will effectively remain within it for goods. From December 31 at 11 pm, all agri-food products arriving in Northern Ireland ports and airports from Great Britain will need to carry a Veterinary Export Heath Certificate. Given its position, Northern Ireland is supposed to be a bridge to the EU. But the new customs rules could create a large amount of paperwork. Meanwhile, products from Great Britain may become more expensive and more difficult to source. Our correspondent Hervé Amoric reports.

  • 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.
