The National Grid

The national grid splits Ireland up into 5 x 5 = 25 grid squares. Each square has a letter of the alphabet ( the letter 'I' is omitted ).

Any point in Ireland can be identified by the grid-square letter followed by the six digits of easting and northing.

Why do you think the letter 'I' is not used ?

In which letter squares would you find Malin Head, Mizen Head, Slyne Head and Howth head ?
