Born/Raised/Live

As the title says, post where you were born, where you grew up for the majority of your childhood (please keep it to just one place. If you moved every other year to another city, fair enough), and where you currently live now.

For me:

Born: Victoria, BC
Raised: Kelowna, BC
Live: Shanghai, China

Born: Sherbrooke QC (That hospital wasn't within city limits then, but thanks to mergers it now is)
Raised: Sherbrooke QC
Live: Currently five different places at the moment. Mostly, Sherbrooke QC where my drivers' license address says I live and my mail arrives, Colebrook NH for my weekend retreat, Bécancour QC which is central to several of our customers where we also have a house/office where I normally spend part of the year when we're on contracts.

At the moment my gf lives in the Quebec City area so I'm there for at least one night or two every week as well... but obviously it won't go on like that for years...

Basically, even if I'm quite mobile I'm still living mostly within a reasonable radius of where I grew up.

My family and my core group of friends are also mostly in Sherbrooke/Montreal. Well, some are scattered, but the only place with a "critical mass" of them is southern Quebec.

Excuse me for asking, but it just seems odd for me to say that Belfast is in Ireland... cause if I ask someone else from Dublin, he will probably say ''Ireland'' rather than Republic of Ireland. Do peoples generally say Ireland if they're speaking of the island itself? How to make the distinction (In the case of unknow and/or smaller cities ? )

Why not simply ''Northern Ireland'' or UK , because it really is a part of it !
