If there is one thing that will piss off an Irish person it is an English person using the term "mainland". The Republic of Ireland is an independent country. The United Kingdom is NOT the mainland. It is a smallish country on the west coast of Europe, the same as Ireland (we are just a smaller country ).

Well, don't forget that Northern Ireland IS part of the UK, so he may very well have been referring to that

Seems it's only useful for England anyway!

Iím very sorry for causing any offence chaps. I was only trying to be helpful and pre-empt any supercilious comments such as ďitís no good to us as it does not cover such & such a placeĒ

Next time Iíll keep me trap shut to prevent any ill feeling.

It's only the term "mainland" that winds us up.

Narked,
We dont discuss religion or politics here in Dublin
