We can see where North Carolina is.

Can you see us?

The main thing is we are so much smaller than you are.

The US is 9,826,675 sq km sq kms.

Ireland is 81,638 sq kms.

Ireland would fit in the United States 120 times

with room to spare.


If North Carolina is 139,390 km² in area,

Ireland would easily fit into North Carolina

with even more room to spare.


At its longest from Antrim down to Cork, Ireland is 486km.

At its widest from County Down across to Mayo, it is 167km.


So we are small, but we say

‘the best goods come in small parcels.’
