New map of Blackstairs, Mt Leinster & Barrow
This is by way of information rather than advertising. A variety of people who visit here might like to note that I have recently published a new map, 'Blackstairs, Mount Leinster & The Barrow Valley'. This map is at 1:25,000 scale printed both sides of the sheet with an overlap at the Scollagh Gap. It is printed on Enduro 100gsm paper, a tough water resistant and tearproof paper and retails at 9.95.

The mapping essentially covers from Bagenalstown/Clonegal in the north to Ballywilliam in the south and from Bunclody in the east to Graignamanagh in the west. So it covers the main group of hills and the adjacent Barrow river valley. Of interest to walkers, anglers, pilots, cyclists, paddlers as well as those just with an interest in the countryside and these localities.

It is two years since our last new publication and a lot of work had gone into this map. The region has considerable cultural and historical merit and I hope this map will help to both inform and stimulate an appreciation of this. Those with an interest in the placenames of the district should look up http://www.eastwestmapping.ie/placenames-heritage#Blackstairs1 Here you will find my personal interpretation of some of the principal placenames of the region based on considerable research: including old publications, research by others in recent decades and many recent enquiries on the ground. As with my other work, I try to record different versions of a name but place the emphasis on what's used locally where I can establish this. I consider that the people who have been born into these districts and lived/ worked there all their lives are in the best position to advise what features are called.

This map is available now from http://www.eastwestmapping.ie for delivery by post (postage & packing charge) and will shortly be in our usual stockists in Dublin etc. Great Outdoors and Outdoor Adventure Store may have stock as I write. I hope to have it available for purchase locally in the south east in the coming weeks.
