    GDP per capita (PPP): UK - $39,511, Ireland - $49,195
    GNI per capita (PPP): UK - $38,370, Ireland - $40,820
    Human Development Index rank: UK - 14, Ireland - 11
    Economist's quality of life index rank: UK - 27, Ireland - 12
    OECD quality of life index rank: UK - 16, Ireland - 12

    In short, Ireland is richer, more developed, and has a higher quality of life than the UK. Compare that to Wales and Northern Ireland, which are in the UK and among the poorest and most deprived places in Western Europe.

    He's not a champ, he's a #1 contender with a belt.

    I've never seen it mentioned here, much less people mad about it.

    TS is a clown.

    Ireland actually wants to be an independent country, it's Scotland that can't do it on it's own and needs England to look after them.

    The Republic of Ireland (Eire) is NOT part of the United Kingdom - they're part of The British Isles though.

    Here's how it works:

    Great Britain = England, Scotland and Wales
    United Kingdom = England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
    British Isles = England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland

    Saying he could be the first champion from The British Isles would be technically correct - but why not just say Ireland?

    The problems with Ireland and Northern Ireland cause a lot of friction - hence the UK part hitting a nerve with the Irish.

    Are there like 2 different Irish people, or just one nation divided in two countries ? I am asking Irish people from either side.
