If you use location based services then you've probably found yourself being "located" miles from where you actually are.
Killeagh County Cork is not "near Dublin", but Facebook was convinced that it was all weekend ..
Irish people are not "British".
Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom either.
Geographically the island is part of the British Isles, though I don't often hear people talking about it in that manner.
So if an Irish company or person fails the British media will refer to them as being Irish, but when they're a success they get labelled as "British".
Or is that they're just ignorant?
