Re: Free Charts Ireland

The UK and Irish charts aren't free and if you have illegal copies on board and get caught it could be a big fine. Same with Canadian charts.

Re: Free Charts Ireland

Questions like this pops up from time to time, and the answer is always the same. All known free, legally down-loadable, chart sources are listed on this page in the OpenCPN Wiki. If there are any other sources I'm sure the wiki would be amended!
