Northern Ireland

Mountains of Mourne by Barbara Ballard Northern Ireland is a small area being only 70 miles wide and 85 miles long. In spite of its size there is much to see from the beaches and peninsulas in the east and north to the Sperrin and Mourne Mountains in the interior. The huge Lough Neagh in the east offers nature reserves and water sports. Lough Erne in the west fulfills the same function. Perhaps the most famous of Northern Irelandís natural attractions is the Giantís Causeway, the geological phenomenon renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt. Like the rest of the island of Ireland, there are prehistoric and religious sites to visit and museums that tell the peopleís stories.

Northern Irelandís counties are Antrim, Armagh, Derry, Down, Fermanagh, and Tyrone
