How deep do you think the Irish sea is?

At it deepest it's only 300m.

I always thought it would be at least a few miles deep. I find it's shallowness hard to accept.

Ireland and the UK would have been one landmass at some stage, I don't find it that unbelievable.

Deep enough to separate them from us, but still let us go and take their jobs while disliking them. So, the perfect depth really.

At the Kisk bank, its only 10m deep. Mad, seeing as you are so far out at sea.
