Ireland in colors
Ireland is the third largest island in Europe (after the UK and Iceland), western of the two largest British Isles. The beautiful island is often called “the emerald isle”, and Ireland is associated mostly with green color. The green color is one of the three main colors of the Irish flag – the Irish vertical tricolor of green, orange and white. It is considered that green color represents the Catholic/nationalist/republican communities, orange represents the Protestant/unionist/loyalist community, and the white stands for the hope for peace and unity between them. In 2011 and 2013, Ireland was ranked the seventh most developed nation in the world by the United Nations’ Human Development Index, Ireland is also highly ranked for press, economic and political freedom. In 2011, Ireland was ranked the most charitable country in Europe, and second most charitable in the world

The Emerald Isle

Full of mystical folklore banshee’s and fairies
Endless searching for clover while leprechaun’s hide
under ground
Mist in the air shadowy dance
Bracken are the hillside’s with bluebell’s and romance
A thorn between county’s once driven apart
Gaelic football and hurling playing under a golden harp
Known for there talk fighting and drink
It’s people have big heart’s and smile’s with a nod
and a wink
It’s most famous city with it’s cobbled stone street’s
Walked author’s and poets
As musicians played in the street’s
Although the tenement building’s no longer stand
The bacon and cabbage is still in demand
A pot of caudill was known as the poor man’s broth
The pawn shop by the Liffee bore everyone’s cross
The rag and bone man no longer calls
No more horses and cart’s everyone now has car’s
Steeped in tradition it’s mythers so brave
This country so green
The emerald isle
