Irish Historic Towns Atlas No. 24


By Fiona Gallagher, Marie-Louise Legg

Irish Historic Towns Atlas, No. 24 details the topographical development of the town of Sligo, from its earliest times to c. 1900. Over 1,000 sites are documented, depicting the urban development of this strategically situated, northwestern Irish town. The Atlas traces Sligo's growth from a Gaelic settlement to the medieval town that developed around Sligo Castle, to its early modern military presence, through to the 20th century. The research includes 21 maps and views of Sligo, as well as the additional thematic maps included in the essay and topographical gazetteer. This oversized, loose sheet pack - which also includes a fully searchable CD-ROM with high resolution maps and images for detailed examination - is part of the highly successful Irish Historic Towns Atlas series, which records the topographical development of a selection of Irish towns.
