The call EI22WAW is associated with the County of Leitrim, the county with the smallest population of any Irish County. Ruled in ancient times by the O'Rourke and O'Reilly clans, rich with iron ore and coal, its population showed rapid decline during the Great Famine in the mid 19th Century. Leitrim in modern times has the reputation as one of the most beautiful and friendly counties in Ireland.
