The Irish Sea :
Or the Erse Sea in the Gaelic of the Scots, which separates the Islands of Eire & the British Isles, the Ulster-Scots referred to it as the Airish Sea and the Welsh as the Mor Iwerddon, linked to the Celtic Sea in the South by the Channel, and to the Inner Seas of the West Coast of Scotland.
Anglesey (Ynys Mon) in Cymru is the largest island in the Irish Sea, the second is the Isle of Man, associated with the sea-god Manannan Mac Lyr, who rode a sea-going chariot across the seas of Ireland & the Atlantic, with his huge cloak trailing in the sea.
The Irish Sea is connected to the North Atlantic at both its northern and southern points, and the Malin Sea. The southern point is linked to the Atlantic by the Channel between Ireland and Pembrokeshire, and the Celtic Sea.
