No, I don't use different name-tag-list values for different tiles.
And meanwhile I found out that the country abbreviation is always
the one from "--country-abbr=XYZ", independent of which value is
specified here. Since the island Ireland consists of two countrys,
the value is always wrong for both states. Between, only the
country Ireland is wrong, North-Irland is always correct.

The precompiled bounds are yours. Between, the latest world tar.gz
archive from November is broken, I always get CRC errors when trying
to unpack it.

I tared up the whole directory, since it isn't that big:


Change into that directory and call:
"mkgmap --style-file=style/ --country-name=ireland --country-abbr=EU --series-name=TK-Ireland-Basemap --family-name=TK-OSM-EU --area-name=EU --overview-mapname=TK-OSM-Ireland-Basemap --tdbfile --latin1 --bounds=bounds --location-autofill=bounds,nearest,is_in --add-pois-to-areas --reduce-point-density-polygon=8 --min-size-polygon=8 --make-opposite-cycleways --remove-short-arcs --adjust-turn-headings --route --net --generate-sea=extend-sea-sectors '--pois-to-areas-placement=entrance=main;entrance=yes;building=entrance;barrier=entrance' --index -c mkgmap.cfg --gmapsupp -c maps.cfg --description=TK-Ireland-Basemap TK_EU.TYP"

You need to adjust the bounds option of course.
