New Ireland Island ("Niu Ailan", aka "Latangai") is located in Papua New Guinea. It has a total area of approx 7404 km2 (2859 ml2) and population around 120,000. New Ireland is the largest island of the PNG's New Ireland Province, lying northeast of New Britain Island. Both isles are part of the Bismarck Archipelago, which is named after Otto von Bismarck (Otto Eduard Leopold, 1815-1898). They are separated by the St George's Channel.

New Ireland Island's administrative centre is the port town of Kavieng, located at its northern end. While New Ireland Island was part of German New Guinea, it was famous as Neumecklenburg ("New Mecklenburg"). During WW2 (1939-1945), in January 1942, the island was captured by the Japanese forces and put under their control.
