Lost World Of Atlantis Found

Is the fabled Hy-Brasil Island off the Coast of Ireland the Lost World Of Atlantis?
Staying on the Irish theme with St. Patrick’s Day just hours away, I found an interesting story on the lost world of Atlantis and to my astonishment Ireland is directly connected to the mythical lost world that ancient Greek scholar Plato described eons ago. When you compare his description, it is uncannily accurate to that of Ireland. Here is the story about the island that is only visible every seven years.
A new book investigating the myth of Atlantis says that the mythical land was actually the island of Ireland. The claim is made by geologist Ulf Erlingsson in his book “Atlantis from a Geographer’s Perspective: Mapping the Fairy Land,” who is to visit Ireland on August 11 to 13.
In his book Erlingsson bases his evidence on Plato’s description of Atlantis which, according to Erlinsson, matches Ireland perfectly. Statistically, the scientist claims, the probability is over 99.98% that Plato was describing Ireland.
Erlingsson says: “Just like Atlantis, Ireland is 300 miles long, 200 miles wide, and widest over the middle. They both feature a central plain that is open to the sea, but fringed by mountains. No other island on earth even comes close to this description.”
