People were very unhappy with The Late Late Show's map of Ireland last night
One episode into the new season, and there's already controversy.
Instead, it involved a map that used as an image of Ireland during a conversation with Dr Eva Orsmond, as she discussed why people in deprived areas are three times more likely to get cancer.

While the weight loss expert discussed with Ryan Tubridy how modern day people have such difficult maintaining a healthy life-style, the camera cut away to an image of Ireland, but with the six counties in Northern Ireland completely cut out.
This is a representation of the recent census date of the country, but this didn't stop folk online from taking umbrage with it:

So the God awful Late Late show now displaying a map of Ireland minus 6 counties. Show and its presenter are beneath contempt.

@deeforbes_dee The Late Late show recently showed a map of Ireland however the 6counties excluded, who sanctioned this and why?
