Probably Hedera hibernica. Common name Atlantic ivy or Irish ivy.

Thanks. Would this be the same as Helix hibernica ?
Or is Helix hibernica = English Ivy. What would the difference be ?

English Ivy would be known as Hedera helix (Hedera being the genus and Helix being the species.) Hedera hibernica would be commonly known as irish Ivy or Atlantic Ivy, thats why I posed the question above is there really such a thing as Irish Ivy.
