Maps of the Roads of Ireland (Taylor & Skinner, 1777) — County Cork maps

In 1777 George Taylor and Andrew Skinner surveyed and mapped the roads of Ireland and published their results the following year. The maps were engraved by Garnet Terry. The strip maps were welcomed for their accuracy and for showing details of roads and crossroads, naming landlords and their houses and outlining topographical features. Listed below are 30 maps of Cork included in the original publication 'Maps of the Roads of Ireland'. Click on a thumbnail below to view a higher resolution pdf of each excerpt. An explanation key and index to crossroads in the maps (This can be used as a guide to the contents of a particular page.) are available directly below, aswell as a map of all Ireland featured at the beginning of the book.
