1545 : Plan of Cork city

The plan of Cork dated 1545 was engraved on a stone by P.J. Klasen from a copy of an ancient sketch in the Tower of London. It was first published in Tuckey's Cork Remembrancer (Cork, 1837). The original plan has been lost. Some historians doubt that the map is as old as is claimed.
