This map of Ireland and Britain's pubs makes for a sobering sight

It’s almost a challenge.

WHERE THERE ARE people, there will be pubs. Where there are Irish and British people, there will be many pubs.

That pretty much sums up this image created by data analyst Ramiro Gómez who decided to plot the locations of 120,000 pubs around the world.

In the resulting map he chose to create to focus Ireland and Britian, mainly because they both have a lot of pubs.

In total, he uses the locations of about 29,000 boozers across the British Isles to show where the biggest concentrations are.

As you’d expect, the pubs are concentrated in the main urban cities across both countries, but there’s barely a space that doesn’t have a watering hole nearby.

If you’re interested in finding out exactly how the data was collected and shown, Gómez has written about it here.

Otherwise, just try and pinpoint your local.
