    This website is pretty good: http://www.diva-gis.org/gdata

    The thing is though it's hard getting one for the 32 counties as it's two jurisdictions so you'll have to get the one for the 'Ireland' and the one for the 'UK' and put the two into Arc and select features and then focus on the 32 counties.




  • Thanks for that, but I wouldn't know where to begin with ARC.

    Not sure if you've heard of it, but I was using jvectormap to put simple but nice looking interactive maps on a web page.
    I'm able to generate maps using converter.py and a shapefile so they're compatible with jvectormap.

    I managed to find a cad drawing containing the 32 counties of Ireland.
    I've converted this to a shapefile (which I was able to open in Quantum GIS).
    But when I try and run the conversion bat file, I get an error saying:
    "Wrong geomtry type: "+geometryType
    TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects.

    I know this is a long shot, but would you have a clue as to how I could fix that?
    :)
