Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSI) 19th Century Historical Maps

A collection of mainly 19th century maps of almost 150 cities, towns, and villages in the Republic of Ireland.

Most are Town Plans which were surveyed at either five or ten foot to one mile scale between 1837 and 1896.

The remainder were produced by enlargement of the 1/2500 maps between 1892 and 1911.

View the entire collection online in the UCD Digital Library.
