      The Explorers Real Map of Ireland Poster and Activity sheet is double-sided and includes an illustration of Ireland’s marine territory on one side and activities on the other. Ireland’s ocean territory is ten times the size of the island of Ireland. The currently designated Irish Continental Shelf, represented by the red line on the map, shows the Republic of Ireland's current territorial waters, which extends out across the North Atlantic Ocean and includes parts of the Irish and Celtic Seas. This area includes one of the largest marine Exclusive Economic Zones in the European Union. The activity sheet on the back includes a word-find and word-jumble, where children can learn the names of the areas of the ocean. It also includes an art activity, drawing the Marine Institute’s research vessels that are used for seabed mapping in Ireland.
