Historical Maps

Clare People, Tuesday, 27th March 2007

Forty-nine historical maps dating back to the early 1700s have been made available online by Clare County Library via www.clarelibrary.ie.

The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection features the first maps to make reference to the West Clare Railway, while others provide information on historic landmarks and tribal settlements.

The library service said that the extensive online collection, dating from 1736 to 1922, would support personal and academic users in their learning, teaching and research of historical issues relating to Clare.
