Eastern Hemisphere

Oops. From today's Irish Independent:
Dublin and Shannon Airports are currently the only airports in the Eastern Hemisphere where US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel screen US-bound flights, enabling passengers to avoid passport checks upon arrival.
What? Now Irish people are afraid to share the same hemisphere as America?

Well, I've got news for the Independent. Dublin Airport is at 6º16' WEST and Shannon is at 8º54' WEST. So there!
