Number 7 in the Irish Historic Towns Atlas series, Maynooth traces the history of this eighteenth-century town through its cartographic and primary sources from earliest times to c. 1900. The fascicle contains Ordnance Survey and historical maps as well as historic and aerial photographs. An essay describes the topographical evolution of Maynooth and a gazetteer, or topographical information, includes histories of c. 400 sites in the town. These atlases illustrate characteristic periods of town formation in Ireland and reflect the country’s cultural identity through the town’s topographical history.
