On Yahoo News you have a caption that reads 'Republic of Ireland', please N.B. the Republic of Ireland is the designated name of the Football Association of Ireland (FAI), assigned by F.I.F.A., for it's international soccer team and NOT the name of a country.
Ireland and/or Éire is the name of the country! (Look-up U.N., E.U., W.H.O., I.M.F. etc. to confirm).
