About: The Ordnance Survey for Ireland was established in 1824. One of the projects involved a team, headed by the Irish scholar John O’Donovan, visiting the counties of Ireland and submitting by letter various information relating to their history, placenames, antiquities, architecture etc. This volume reprints the letters sent back to Dublin from Wicklow and Carlow. It should be noted that the places listed in the contents are the places from which the letters were sent, but the topics covered in the letters themselves range much more widely and together cover all locations in the county.
