Townlands and the Boundaries Data Series
Yes, I'm aware of that series as I used to work in a library that had bought a stock of them in the 1960s. It still exists, but judging from the sample images on the OSI site, it hardly appears to have been updated since the 60s. It shows little to nothing in the way of the relief, watercourses, vegetation, archaeological detail, different standards of road, etc. It is now marketed as a separate "Boundaries Data" Series, but it is beyond me why OSI thinks that boundaries are only of importance to special interest groups and why they think such users would want to see the townland and electoral district boundaries without any other features to put it in environmental context. The advantage of the new OSNI edition is that it combines all this information on one map, though on different sides of the map. Personally, I think it would be even better if it was all on the same side, though I recognise that the boundaries would have to be discreet not to interfere with other detail, so perhaps most walkers would prefer their solution.
