It’s not a huge deal but.. it’s “Ireland”, not “Republic of Ireland”

The island of Ireland has two soccer teams. Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, hence the distinction. They have an all Ireland team for other sports including rugby.

You're wrong.

Whilst the country is Éire (or Ireland), the team is not.

The women's football team representing Éire is The Republic of Ireland's Women's National Team.

Which is useful considering there are two countries located on the island of Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Women's National Team represents Northern Ireland.

Perhaps you are confused by the badge? But best to be correct before you tell others they are wrong.
