The majority of the island of Ireland is taken up by the Republic of Ireland. The landscape on the West is mostly made up of mountains, hills and rugged cliffs. The Central Area has several lakes and glacial deposits of sand and clay. The longest river in Ireland, the River Shannon which is more than 380 km long, also crosses the central area.
