I think that rather depends on whether you’re talking politically or geographically. But I shall bow to your wishes and call it the Republic of Ireland if you likeNo such state as Southern Ireland... if it is used, it’s used in ignorance.

Ironically enough, the northern most point in Ireland is further north than Northern Ireland.
