Inch to the Mile Maps of Ireland

  • These Old Ordnance Survey Maps normally cover an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles and are especially good at showing railways, roads and canals, and at giving a broad view of a wider area. Each includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

    The map includes the towns of Keady, Newtownhamilton and Castleblayney, while to the east are Camlough and Bessbrook. Features include Slieve Gullion, Camlough Mountain, part of the Bessbrook & Newry Tramway, part of the Armagh & Newry Branch, mills and bleach works in the Keady and Darkley area, Muckno Lake etc. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Keady itself in 1906, incl Town Hall, St Matthew's church, mills, mill pond, St Clare's Convent, railway under construction, saw mills etc.

    It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
