Voting in NI

I was just watching the competition streamed from Irish television, for choosing Ireland's 2011 Eurovision entry. (It'll probably be another hour until voting's done.)

The most interesting thing about the songs recap was that it included instructions on how people in Northern Ireland could vote. That's a different country. Surely, they should be voting for the UK's entry, not Ireland's. Do they get to double-vote there?

P.S. Strongest entry won, squeaking victory by a smidgen over the other strongest entry: Jedward will be in the Eurovision semi-finals.

That makes sense. And there are advantages to being able to vote early and often, especially when it's just Eurovision. :)

Edited to add: I think sbisson below has an even more likely answer: the voting zones aren't divided by country, but by broadcasting zones. I wonder if the internet holds a map which explains everything.
