Why is the Irish Republic shown as Ulster?

Some counties in the Republic of Ireland, specifically Donegal which we have found cache in, are listed as Ulster despite not being in Ulster (Northern Ireland). I think there some others that this also applies for. Geocaching.com also has NI listed as Ireland not UK (its GB if not counting NI), but that isn't a Project-GC problem!

I believe the definition of Ulster is derived from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulster

Here you can see which counties are in Ulster which has nothing to do with Northern Ireland

Ireland is based on geografical area's and not on political area's
