Galway Pocket Map Published02 December 2015
This pocket map from the Irish Historic Towns Atlas shows historic Galway plotted onto a detailed Ordnance Survey Ireland modern base. Over 200 sites and streets covering 700 years are depicted in colour and listed in an accompanying index. Town walls, bridges, churches, gallows, public buildings, schools, theatres and wells are among the sites shown, many of which no longer survive in the present-day cityscape. An ideal aid for a walking tour of the historic town, the map (940 x 705 mm) is folded to pocket size and accompanied by a booklet with commentary on the urban development of Galway by authors Jacinta Prunty and Paul Walsh. The map is based on work-in-progress for the Irish Historic Towns Atlas of Galway by the same authors, which is due for publication in 2016.
