The British Isles are a group of islands northwest of Europe. Not all of these islands are British. Ireland is the second largest island in the group but the Republic of Ireland is not British. The term "British Isles" is used for convenience in grouping the following countries into one category: England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Channel Islands.
