Irish Historic Towns Atlas No. 13


By Tadhg O'Keeffe

The Irish Historic Towns Atlas records the topographical development of a representative selection of Irish towns and cities. Each atlas focuses on a particular town or city and comprises a variety of maps, an essay explaining historical development, and a body of classified topographical information covering the urban area as a whole and its component parts. This atlas traces the development of Fethard to 1900 and includes: a large color reconstruction of the town in 1840; two early eighteenth-century maps by Redmond Grace followed by Steile and Swiney from 1752 and 1763, respectively tracing the town's growth for that period; an attractive estate map based on the Ordnance Survey, 1845; and two Ordnance Survey maps showing Fethard in its surroundings and the modern town. It also includes a topographical information section that lists historical and archaeological details of over 380 sites and an essay, all tracing the development of the town to 1900.
