Search for Google Ireland in Google and you will notice that Google does not return Google.ie but rather returns Google.co.nz. Someone should send Google a memo that Ireland is not the same place as New Zealand.

Hah! I bet it's forcing "island" as a synonym for "Ireland".

New Zealand web pages are chock full of references to "north island" and "south island".

Too fuzzy again.

Yes searching for Google South Africa and Google Egypt you will also get New Zealand. Searching for Google Argentina will give you Google Brazil.

In Kitty O Shea's Irish Bar in New Zealand you truly are in the heart of Ireland!

Searching for the same query on Bing and Yahoo will give you the exact result. *tsktsktsk*

Yahoo & Bing = 1 : Google = 0

Apparently, Bing is showing search terms as sitelinks
