Every City and Town in Ireland on a Map

In the Republic of Ireland there are 5 cities, 5 boroughs, 75 town councils and 53 urban non-municipal towns and in Northern Ireland 6 cities and 36 towns. How many can you name?
Cities are shown bold and boroughs italic. On the map, for both the contour is shown as well as a circle.
English, Irish, Scots and Old Norse names are accepted. Tell me if I'm missing any.
Here you can try your hand at Wales.
