Today, Montserrat is often given the nickname of the Emerald Island of the Caribbean, because the island's large slopes are covered by lush green tropical vegetation, and through the connection to Ireland of many of its early settlers.
Montserrat's Georgian-era capital city of Plymouth was destroyed and two-thirds of the island's population forced to flee abroad owing to the eruption of the Soufriere Hills volcano that began on July 18, 1995.
