A fascinating post from the ever-fascinating Strange Maps:
These pictures are the front and back of a t-shirt for the 2008 Pogues US tour, and together they form a world map according to the Pogues. The quotes are all taken from Pogues lyrics, and reflect the world as seen through Irish eyes, with an emphasis on lands important to the Irish diaspora.

That map on the T-shirt is also a great reference source for the endless stream of cover bands who think "Dirty Ol' Town" is an Irish tune about Dublin.
