re new Galtees, Knockmealdown maps
Aidan
That's great news. Indeed I do remember the 1/2 inch to mile maps only too well. They were the staple until the mid 90s.Who can forget the horrendous error in the Maamturks NW of Binn Chaonaigh where a massive glacial valley wasn't shown properly leading to people dropping 200m on the challenge walk.

Going on experience with previous East-West maps such as the Comeraghs these will be excellent maps for hillwalkers, properly showing features the hillwalkers care about such as tracks, terrain, forest roads, possible access points etc. They also show the position of Arderins, The lack of clutter is also outstanding and the new contours are a lot better than older East-West maps.

It remains to be seen whether these will have the same occasional issues to do with the removal of official names. However I hope people do support East-West in this endeavour.
