Provinces of Ireland
|The Four Provinces of Ireland|
Ceithre Chúigí na hÉireann
|1. Leinster, 2. Munster, 3. Connacht, 4. Ulster|
The Provinces of Ireland were the main divisions of Ireland prior to 1922 when it was partitioned as a result of the majority of it becoming independent. Ireland was divided into four different provinces, or territorial divisions.
The four provinces are:
|Province||Population (2006)||Area (km²)||Number of Counties†||Chief city|
|† "Number of Counties" is traditional counties, not administrative ones.|
