County Clare GMaps tool

Clare County Library has launched a new mapping tool called GMaps, which overlays historical maps from 1842 onwards onto a Google map. The historical maps include historic OS maps, townlands survey maps, maps from the UK Hydrographic maps, and enough additional maps to make me seriously envious that I have no Clare based roots!

A seriously brilliant tool, available at www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/maps/index.htm.
