Discovering Ireland, Maps and History

This page is for posts discussing Ireland, its history and landscape. One of my favorite hobbies is exploring Ireland off an OS map (Ordnance Survey), the landscape is dotted with heritage sites: Megalithic Monuments, Monasteries, Holy Wells, Norman Castles, barrows, hill forts

Links and pictures soon to be added 🙂 Watch this space…

I envision eventually building up an interactive 3d map of Ireland, its monuments and their relation to one another. Ambitious really, with all the work that it would require – charting changes in the landscape going back centuries is hard enough – never mind millennia. However, bearing all such considerations in mind and using the vast resources available b this day and age – its achievable.

I’m particularly interested in old stories and legends associated with place names etc,
