[Maps for Ireland] [Maps for Co. Cork [Towns on Map # 80] [Where to Purchase Online]

The Discovery series OS maps are 1:50,000. They are quite detailed. I work with original OS series maps from the earlier surveys, the kind for which current versions can be purchased from the OS office in the Phoenix Park at a much higher price than these particualr maps, they do show a lot more detail but you don't need anything like this unless you have actually pinpointed the place you are interested in.

The discovery series maps, are, in general sufficient for the purpose of identifying location of townlands, the larger sized OS maps show you the outlines of townlands. The Disc. ser. show the locations of old churches, landmarks, graveyards, burial grounds, places of archaeological interest.and general topography of an area. They do not show houses or villages whcih no longer exist. They are not indexed..you have to sit down and go through them bit by bit.

There are in all 89 maps. These maps cost from four pounds and twenty pence to four pounds and fifty pence in shops here in Ireland and can be purchased at most book shops. Generally speaking it is only the larger shops in the cities which will carry all maps for teh country. Then in each county you will find shops which sell those for that county. In order to have maps which cover the whole of any county it is necessary to purchase a few maps. If you look through the numbers as I have them here you will be able to see those maps which straddle a number of counties. The numbers after each county represent the number of the OS map required for that county.

As you can see from the above, there is a fair bit of overlap. Some of these maps only take in part of the county I have them listed for..a very small part. So, it is wisest to check with someone as to which maps cover the edges of a county so to speak before you go off and buy the whole lot.
