"Northern Ireland" is not listed either in "United Kingdom" nor in "Ireland".

Interestingly enough, Northern Ireland seems to be covered under Ireland and then Ulster and then you have the counties which belong to Ulster, both in the Republic and within the UK, all enumerated there.

Many thanks for your quick help
For clarity, the reason that we count Northern Ireland as Ireland is that geocaching.com does it that way.
I have noticed:

In my "Profile stats" there is a Europe map where Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom.
I have not found any cache in Ireland until now, but Northern Ireland is green.
