: Please disregard my earlier message -- I got it all wrong, not being able to find again the reference I wanted. Now I have found it and it comes in a passage describing a particular homosexual and his "practice" in David Seabrook's recent book "All the Devils Are Here": "The standard sequence of events seems to have been[when visited by a young man] a hot bath, a meal, and later on a map of Ireland if the mood was right". What exactly in this context is "a map of Ireland"?

I couldn't find the meaning using Google. Maybe it means the two men got together for some Dublin' up.
