Re: laminating maps
mwalimu,

Back in the good old days when I required full sheet maps to be laminated and before the "Aqua range" of maps I used to take my paper maps to the Teachers Resource Centre in Clondalkin or Clonliff to laminate them myself.
Most of the teacher resource centres had large laminating machines at the time. You could also take them along to Reids of Nassua street where you could have them laminated for a price of course. I still have a lot of these coil spring maps gathering dust in a box under the bed in the spare room.

I have moved on since then as with most of my hill walking friends to the OSI'S TrailMaster software and now print off A4 size usually 1:25000 scale maps as many times as I like all for 50 euro for all the mountain ranges on the east coast including the Galtees. I laminate these maps on my own A4 laminator. I find most days hiking will fit on an A4 size page, they can be saved and used over and over again, no creasing required.

If you have access to a computer and printer I suggest maybe look at the software version.

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size
Aidy 5 days ago.
A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
