Description  
This map shows the Kingdom of Ireland divided into provinces, counties and baronies. The detail in this map is extraordinary and it shows every town, hamlet, bishopric, county, forest, castle and road. It also offers some offshore details with regard to the shoals in Georges Channel. The inset map in the lower-right quadrant shows Ireland in the context of the British Isles and the elaborate cartouche in the upper-left quadrant shows the Irish harp over two bovines and a demurely positioned unclothed maiden.
