250 million years ago, a large basalt flow occured in northern Russia and in mid ocean, creating much of Siberia and the subcontinent of HIreland. The HIrelanian subcontinent drifted until it collided with the edge of the European continental shelf, and pushed inwards to what is known as dogger bank, creating the East HIreland mountain range, several of which are off the coast and form the HIrelander islands. The basalt composition of HIreland has created many Basalt column formations on HIreland's coastlines, many of which were destroyed in the HIreland ocean reclamation projects. Much of HIreland's land was made artificially by dumping gravel into the sea. Hireland's weather is extremely wet and cold, the only time it is not raining is in the winter, when it is snowing. HIreland has cool summers and freezing winters, which sometimes remind people of the similar weather in the other basalt flows. The ground of most of HIreland is relatively flat, with the only real features being glacial. HIreland is famous for it's highlands, which are very wet and muddy, with the sodden ground often giving way to marshes and swamps. The smell of these is preferred to that of urban HIreland.
