UPDATE:

The full irish.

This morning.

Via Royal Irish Academy Library

On display in the Reading Room [19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2] today: A map of Ireland based on descriptions by Claudius Ptolemy (c. AD 90-168). Not bad for an ancient geographer who had never visited! This map was printed in Rome, 1490.

An oddity….but every time it rains in Brussels [Belgium]….the pavement outside always bring forth ….this … a little reminder of home….And with Dublin’s night lights too.

Mmf.

We are not worthy.

Caroline Keegan tweetz:

Just letting yous know my brother has a birthmark that’s the exact shape of Ireland.

In fairness.

Meanwhile…

Publishers New Island inform us they have an entire basement of unsold copies a small number of copies left of classic, pareidolia-based best-seller The Broadsheet Book Of Unspecified Things That Look Like Ireland in their storeroom.

New Island suggest: “Come get them or we bin them” “They would make the perfect stocking-filler.”

A fiver while stocks last.
