This is one of the finest old, colour maps of Ireland. Originally titled A General Map of Ireland, created for the Railway Commissioners in 1837 by RJ Griffith, this is a wonderfully detailed map of the entire island with the geological (rock) and palaeontological (fossils) features hand coloured.
Because of the amount of detail in this map, the smallest version we can print is 100cm (39.4in) wide. I can print this map at sizes up to a few metres wide. Get in touch if that's what you're looking for.
Every major county, town and city is visible on this map, as are a lot of smaller villages. If you've ever wondered about the geological strata below Cork, Dublin, Belfast or Limerick, this is the map for you!
As you'd expect, you can also see the entire railway system of Ireland on this map.
Many little visualisations adorn the edges of the map, providing detailed analyses of the geological structures of certain parts of Ireland. For example, the top right visualisation shows the 'relative positions of the Mesozoic, Cenozoic and basaltic formations' of Murnells Rocks.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Ireland or has a keen interest in the geography and geology of Ireland.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
