Number 27 in the Irish Historic Towns Atlas series, Youghal traces the growth and development of the town from its origins as an Anglo-Norman borough and seaport, to market town, to seaside resort. Over 25 loose, large-format pages reproduce old maps, plans and views, alongside reconstructions and thematic maps to help tell the story of Youghal in a visual way. An accompanying text section includes an explanatory essay and historical gazetteer with over 1,500 entries on features of the townscape such as streets, schools, town walls, tanneries etc. Also included is a CD-ROM where the text is word searchable and the maps and images are in high resolution allowing for detailed examination.
