The first recorded maps of Ireland were drawn in the 16th Century. By law, (a law that is in effect to this day, ) the British government had to have an accurate representation of layout and terrain of all of their possessions. These maps provide a fascinating and colorful insight into the changing landscape as towns grew and harbors were created. It is a tribute to the accuracy, detail and art of the cartographers of the time.
