I am a regular reader of your blog and I also do have "a thing" for maps.

I am a fellow cartophiliac and read this blog everyday; great work! As an Irishman (Éireannach) I would just like to point out that the above map is incorrect, the UK does not contain the Republic of Ireland as indicated by this map. Sadly a very common error in maps!!

Yes, I thought of that when I first saw the map.

Rest assured... IF I WAS DRAWING THAT MAP... I would get Ireland correct!

Thanks for stopping by!
