So where exactly is this being held then?

RE "Wales and Scotland represent the last relic of English colonisation. The English were ejected from France after the death of Joan of Arc and from Eire in 1921,.."

There is no such place as Eire, perhaps Éire is what you had intended to write!
The Irish State 'Éire' does not include the 6 counties of Northern Ireland, which are still under British/English Rule.
