    • They should say the United Kingdom and Ireland for clarity, shouldn’t they?

      It will be both Ireland and Northern Ireland though, of course, because our DNA is hopefully gleefully unaware of the borders that men have established over the years. Just the same as soil on one side of the border would be identical to that immediately on the other side… because the border is irrelevant – something that we have imagined into being.
