THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

John Andrews MRIA

20 November 2019

We remember John Andrews, MRIA, who died on Friday (15 November 2019) in Chepstow, Wales. Founding father of the Irish Historic Towns Atlas, historical geographer and renowned historian of Irish cartography, he was a formidable intellectual presence throughout his life. Our thoughts are with his wife Doris who nursed him through his long illness.
