  • Montserrat is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean. The island is less than 10 miles long and 7 miles wide, and is known as the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean because of its lush greenery, helping it resemble the Irish coast, and the Irish ancestry or many of its inhabitants.
  • Christopher Columbus named Montserrat after the Monastery of Montserrat in Catalonia, Spain. In the 17th Century the island came under British control and many Irish convicts and political exiles were sent there to settle. Sugar cane, cotton and rum grown on large plantations with the help of African slaves.
  • In 1995 the volcano Soufriere Hills erupted, wiping out the nearby capital, Plymouth. Two thirds of the island were forced to flee, and there is still, now, an exclusion zone around the volcano. A new town and port is being built in the north of the island, at Little Bay.
