Why is dans le Merseyside correct when it is stated to be a county...isn't it feminine?
This question relates to:French lesson "En, dans = In, to with regions, states, counties (prepositions)"

Aurélie affirmed that, indeed, Merseyside is masculine. It joins ranks with all the other British counties and regions endinge on -shire, which are also masculine. That's as close to a justification I can give. It is probably also as close to one as there is.
