Online Maps of County Sligo

The 1837's first edition of the Ordnance Survey's 6-inch maps is now available. It shows Sligo in the boundaries before the Local Government reform of 1898, i.e. before the DEDs east of Ballina (Ardnaree North, Ardnaree South Rural, and Ardnaree South Urban) were transferred from Sligo to Mayo.

You can access the maps through the Search Window or via a Location Index of Towns and Parish Townlands. The latter are organised in a Parish - Townland hierarchy. So to get to a townland map position you'll start with a list of Sligo's 1837's parishes, click on a parish name and then select the townland from the next web page.
