NationMaster.Com is a fascinating site, that brings together statistics from the CIA World Fact Book and other sources to create charts that rank nations in all sorts of areas of activity. Some of the figures are a bit out of date, because they have to match up the most recent data available from so many countries, but here are three areas that Ireland comes tops in:
