·  Scottish people are famous for their whisky and for wearing kilts, the typical knee-lenght skirts for both men and women.
 
·  Wales is rich in culture and history. The Welsh people are known for their love of music and poetry.
 
The Republic of Ireland is a sovereign state and is mostly Catholic. But there are many problems between Protestants and Catholics! The Irish people are hospitable and friendly, they like music and dancing. And they like going to pubs where live music and drinking is very common.
