Ireland's call

• Paul Kelly (Letters, June 8) in relation to the name used by the FAI for the Irish soccer team, states "Ireland, sadly, is a geographical location only. There is no political entity called Ireland".

This is incorrect, the Constitution of Ireland clearly states in Article 4: "The name of the State is Eire, or, in the English language, Ireland."

Therefore, 'Ireland' is the correct name for our 26-county State.
