The Republic of Ireland, is the country made up of 26 of the 32 counties on the island of Ireland. The Republic of Ireland is officially known as Ireland or in the Irish language Éire, according to the Irish constitution. So the names Republic of Ireland and Ireland are used interchangeably. You will see Éire written on Irish stamps and coins.
