Why doesn't the coverage checker allow checking cities in Ireland?

I'm using the coverage checker on the My EE website for my 4gee wifi pay as you go sim and it won't allow me to enter a city in ireland to check coverage there? the coverage map shows the UK coverage only.

Because EE is a UK company.

 

When you go to Ireland you are roaming and not on an EE network as they don't have a network over there.

EE don’t cover the British Isles.  They do cover the United Kingdom and Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom.  That’s why they use the Euro and not Pounds.  Ireland is its own country.

Yes you can use all over europe but it wont show on the EE coverage map as you are not using EE network abroad. You are using the local networks.

 

EE doesnt operate outside the UK
