What are the directions for Ireland?

How might you answer this question? I might say: From North American, Ireland is just east of Gander, Newfoundland, Canada, as an airplane flies, just under 2,000 miles.

The world wants to be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. The patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, was born in Britain, not Ireland, and is reputed to have driven all the snakes out of Ireland. He’s also famous for using a shamrock to convert the Irish to Christianity. The parts that are fact or legend might never be known. I do know for fact my family has Irish roots.
