Sully’s at Boston, US maintains a website offering t-shirts and other popular
sorts of clothes:
http://www.sullysbrand.com/ and the company logo, already rather vexy, has
bred an attractive Irish variant flag. See fifth down on this page:
Caption: “Sully’s famous IRISH flag logo, made into a huge 3 foot by 5 foot flag! Perfect for St. Patricks’ Day, or every day if you are Irish!”
The white middle stripe of the Irish national flag is converted to a shamrock with three leaves. Note how the design causes the green field to spill over into the fly.

A friend of mine writes, "within the past year or so I've seen flags in my
neighborhood (which is very Irish) that are the standard Irish tricolor, but
have on the white, in green, the shape of the entire island, not just the
Republic. A quick Google Images search doesn't find anything."
I see nothing like this on FOTW or on the Flags of Ireland site. I used your images as a base to construct the attached file based on this description, and tried searching for something similar using www.tineye.com, but all it turned up was maps of the British Isles.

I found on a website dedicated to the Belgian gastronomy the recipe of a
cocktail called "Irish flag":
2 cc Mint spirit
2 cc Irish cream (Bayley's)
2 cc Grand Marnier
The ingredients have to be poured in the above order, very gently down a long spoon, so that the coloured liquids won't mix together.
