Our customer reviews

This atlas is a great initiative by the Irish Times. It covers all of Ireland with Ulster, Munster, Leinster and Connacht all separately mapped. The Ireland section also includes satellite images of Ireland, an historical map of Ireland, Ireland's climate, Ireland's tourism, city centre maps amongst other things. The atlas is specially tailored for the Irish reader with a preference for Derry on maps (with Londonderry in parentheses) and the complete erasure of the term 'British Isles' from the atlas. The thirty-two page Ireland section is, of course, in addition to the World section which covers each of the world's continents. It is the perfect addition to any Irishman's or Irishwoman's reference collection. I can only hope that the Irish Times continues with this initiative in years to come.show more
