    Meeting ahead of the G7 summit in Cornwall, Boris Johnson joked with Joe Biden saying he wouldn’t disagree with anything the president says.

    But behind the smiles and the bonhomie in this first meeting of the US president and the prime minister, is the dispute over the Northern Ireland Protocol.

    Joe Biden, a Catholic Irish American who is proud of his heritage, and whose secret service nickname is Celtic has made it no secret that he will not accept anything that imperils peace in Northern Ireland.

    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.
