The large scale plans of the Ordnance Survey are quite unique. In a clear and attractive manner they have portrayed our towns and villages in detail over the last 150 yeas. They show not just the streets but virtually every house; the complete track layouts of railways and tramways are given; factories, mills and docks are all shown. The maps contain al the fascinating minutiae that is the lifeblood of history and have become the most complete record of the places where our ancestors lived and worked.
The Godfrey Edition is a major undertaking to reprint these maps, in a convenient and affordable form, for towns throughout the country. This map will delight local historians, genealogists and all who are interested in the history of Northern Ireland and its towns.
This very detailed map is double-sided for maximum coverage. The main map covers the northern part of the town with coverage extending NW to Ballyduff House. Features include Grand Canal, Canal Harbour, St Mary's RC church, Market Square, Constabulary Barracks, Union Workhouse, malthouses, Ballydrohid House, quarries etc.
On the reverse we include part of adjacent sheet 17.09 extending coverage southward to include railway with station, Court House, Elmfield, O'Connor Square, High Street, corn mill, Kilcruttin township, St Joseph's Cemetery.
