And of course, the reason they don't mention the Republic of Ireland is the same reason they don't usually give the weather for france  Crazy

Isn't that the island that was sunk by the Germans during the war (they thought by its silhouette that it was a ship!)  Crazy

I was cheating a bit there as it was one of the subjects of the Countryfile program

Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison head for Northern Ireland on a journey that takes them from the windswept Antrim Coast to the ancient forests of the Lagan Valley, on the outskirts of Belfast. Ellie's first stop is Rathlin Island, where she's in search of the legendary golden hare, while Matt tries his hand at the ancient art of spade-making before planting saplings in woodlands threatened by sudden oak death. Plus, 10 years after the worst outbreak of foot-and-mouth in living memory, John Craven asks what would happen if the disease broke out today. What lessons have we learned and could we cope? In the final part of his crusade to put British wool on the map, Adam Henson takes to the streets of Stow-on-the Wold to model a suit made from home-grown wool. He's accompanied by the real stars of the show - some of the sheep which provided the raw material.
