Excerpt: The Irish Sea (Irish: Muir Éireann/Muir Mhanann, Scottish Gaelic: Muir Èireann/Muir Mhanainn, Manx: Mooir Vannin, Welsh: Môr Iwerddon, Scots: Erse Sea), also known as the Mann Sea or Manx Sea, separates the islands of Ireland and Great Britain. It is connected to the Atlantic Ocean in the south by St George's Channel, and in the north by the North Channel. Anglesey is the largest island within the Irish Sea, followed by the Isle of Man. The sea is of significant economic importance to regional trade, shipping and transport, fishing, and power generation in the form of wind power and nuclear plants. Annual traffic between the two islands amounts to over 12 million passengers and 17 million tonnes of traded goods. The International Hydrographic Organization defines the limits of the Irish Sea (with St George's Channel) as follows: On the North. The Southern limit of the Scottish Seas . On the South. A line joining St. David's Head ( ) to Carnsore Point ( ). Unlike Great Britain, Ireland has no tunnel or bridge connection to mainland Europe. Thus the vast majority of heavy goods trade is done by sea. Northern Ireland ports handle 10 million tonnes of goods trade with Great Britain annually, while ports in the Republic of Ireland handle 7.6 million tonnes, representing 50% and 40% respectively of total trade by weight. The Port of Liverpool handles 32 million tonnes of cargo and 734 thousand passengers a year. Holyhead port handles most of the passenger traffic from Dublin and Dún Laoghaire ports, as well as 3.3 million tonnes of freight. Ports in the Republic handle 3,600,000 travellers crossing the sea each year, amounting to 92% of all Irish Sea travel. This has been steadily dropping for a number of years (20% since 1999), probably as a result of low cost airlines. Ferry connections from Great Britain to Ireland across the Irish Sea include the routes from Swansea to Cork, Fishguard and Pembroke to Rosslare, Holyhead to Dún Laoghaire, Holyhead to Dublin, Stranraer t
