	The island is called Ireland, but it is divided into two
	jurisdictions.  Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom,
	governed from London.  The remainder of the island is a separate
	state, the Republic of Ireland, with its government in Dublin.

	The Constitution of Ireland (Bunreacht na hEireann) states in
	Article 4.  "The name of the State is Éire, or in the English
	language, Ireland".  Some people find the use of "Éire" or
	(worse) "Eire" in English irritating, but not everyone.

	"Ireland" is ambiguous: it may refer to the island or to the
	part governed from Dublin.  You may want to say "the island of
	Ireland" to avoid this ambiguity.

	The following are synonyms in common usage.  Some of these terms
	are politically loaded: the first in each list is the best
	choice if you want to make yourself clear (without committing
	yourself to a particular political view).

	Northern Ireland; Ulster; the North; the Six Counties

	Republic of Ireland; Ireland; the South; the Twenty Six
	Counties; the Free State

I'm looking for information regarding navigable waterways for a 44' fly bridge cruiser for corporate entertainment such as the big horse racing events. I've searched the internet and book stores here in Walws without success.
