Ordnance Survey of Ireland Print Maps in the Yeats Library

Print maps in the Yeats Library are held in a series of upright cabinets and plan drawer cabinets in the Infozone.

Most maps are listed and may be searched by keyword or other headings in the Library Print Catalogue.  There are also lists and other information regarding the maps on the cabinets themselves. In addition to providing the title of each map, the lists on the upright cabinets indicate towns and other locations found on each map as a general guide to finding the location you require.

A summary of the Ordnance Survey maps in the cabinets is provided in the tabs Upright Cabinet 1 and Upright Cabinet 2

NMS Print Maps

The National Monumnts Service have produced paper maps and indexes based on the Sites and Monuments Record.  

The maps are based on the Ordnance Survey of Ireland Maps with each archaeological site circled.

The index allows particular sites to be searched by name.

The Yeats Library has most of these maps and booklets in stock.

They are stored in the Plan Drawer Cabinets in the maps area of the Library.

They are not used very frequently since the information was made available digitally in the Historical Environment Viewer
