My boredom project for April.

Up first, and as a placeholder is the party that leads by total vote in each of the STV wards for 2011

Orange = DUP
Green = SF
Red = SDLP
Blue = UUP
Gold = Alliance
Purple = UKIP

Excellent work on that map! I see that this is the first map you intend to upload of this election... what other ones do you also have planned? I'm looking forward to seeing them!

Aye, nice work. Bit of an odd colour for SF, though?

Also a "lol" + a "what the absolute feck?!" for UKIP.

Thank you! From what I recall, these boundaries have been used since 1993 so I can use them to show older results. I plan on doing what I did for Scotland and identifying how many seats were won in each ‘ward’ by each party (darker colours for more seats etc) A Nationalist v Unionist vote total would also be worth doing.

Kilkeel is a small town and is mostly Unionist. It happens that the most popular Unionist in the town is a member of UKIP.

His name is Henry Reilly.
Didn't know his base was that concentrated, but am not surprised in the slightest. This is Ireland after all.

He is UKIP in Northern Ireland. Their vote everywhere else was derisory.

Excellent stuff! I'd definitely like to see a unionist-nationalist map. If you're taking requests, a map showing the largest unionist and the largest nationalist party in each ward would also be interesting.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Obviously not as detailed, but I made a unionist vs. nationalist map for the 2011 Assembly election.  (I considered Alliance to be unionist and the far-left parties to be nationalist, my metric being whether they were affiliated with a British or an Irish party).

Why is the SDLP so strong around Derry?

A mixture of tradition (John Hume) and of actually being well-organised there.

You can see similar phenomena on a smaller scale in south Down (both in Downpatrick and the Warrenpoint/Rostrevor area) and in south Belfast (although there it owes a lot to demographic change).

IIRC, the wards in NI are 5 to 7 seats mostly, are they not?

Strictly speaking, wards in Northern Ireland are single seats. They're then combined to form District Electoral Areas with between 5 and 7 seats, which are what is used for elections.

Example for Belfast:
