National Geographic's Executive political map of Britain and Ireland is both an attractive addition to any study or classroom and an informative tool for exploring these fascinating countries. The map features thousands of place names, major highways and roads, airports, ferry routes, bodies of water, and more. Handy indexes make it easy to identify the counties, districts, council areas, unitary authorities, and metropolitan districts of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England.
An inset provides detail of the Shetland Islands. National parks are clearly indicated in green vignettes, and shaded relief reveals the interesting and varied topography of these island nations. English and Gaelic (Irish) share official status per the Republic of Ireland's constitution, so place names are rendered in both. In the Gaeltacht or predominantly Irish-speaking regions, only Irish place-names have an official status and are used on signposts. These districts are found within the counties of Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kerry, Mayo, Meath, and Waterford.
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply our map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
