Map of Ireland Provinces

How to Map the Provinces of Ireland

You can now create a map of Ireland provinces using Mapline. Ireland is divided into four provinces: Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster. The Irish word “cúige” for provincial division literally means “fifth part.” Historically the country had five provinces, including a fifth called Meath. Today, parts of Meath are assigned to Leinster and Ulster. The Ireland provinces have no administrative or political purposes; rather, they function as cultural and historical entities and include:
  • Connacht – The smallest of the four Irish provinces, with a population of more than half a million
  • Leinster – The most populous province with over 2.5 million in population
  • Munster – Covers a total area of 24,675 sq km (9,527 sq mi) with a population of over 1.2 million. Other urban centers include Cork, Limerick and Waterford
  • Ulster – Ulster is made used up of three counties: Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan
