THE BRITISH ISLES

 

Sir, - Following the controversy in the letters page on the use of the title "British Isles" to include Ireland, it comes as a great disappointment to find an Irish secondary school - Terenure College - using this same title in the entry of one of its pupils in this year's Young Scientist event: "Earthquake Patterns in the British Isles." Will we, ever grow up! - Yours, etc.,
