When Published: 2012

Publisher / Place of Publication: Richard Chandler / Fir Tree Cottage, St Marys, Chalford, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL6 8PU England.

About: A map that gives a new perspective to the Wicklow Mountains and surrounding areas. It artistically interprets Ordnance Survey Mapping and aerial photography to provide a unique feel for the terrain that your ordinary map cannot convey. This map covers an area from Dublin City down to Coolgreany, across via Aughrim, Rathdangan and Grangecon, over to Narraghmore, onto Naas and back to Dublin. Unfortunately, coverage does not extend to Carnew, Shillelagh, Tinahely, Kiltegan or Baltinglass.
