Depicted are the baronies in different colours, towns, villages, roads, railways, canals, mountains, rivers, lakes, bays, headlands and islands. With a detailed general description of Ireland by P.W. Joyce on the situation, size and population, surface, mountains, coastline and headlands, islands and peninsulas, rivers, lakes, bogs, minerals, climate, canals, ancient divisions, antiquities and legends of the early colonies. I am indebted to my friend, the late Maurice Craig who pointed out a typographical error in the index: Mount Bottom (County Waterford) should read Mount Bolton.
