What a marvellous resource - thanks for that Paul. Great (too much) thread potential here. I see some industrious individual highlighted the snaking route of the River Poddle on a section of it, even if it goes a bit loopy in part.

What a great map. I could spend hours comparing it to the contemporary images on Google Earth.
I never knew Liberty Hall was built on the site of a dry dock!
Slightly north of here, part of Marlboro Green would still appear to exist, albeit in the form of a courtyard surrounded by the Irish Life building.

Is this map basically an eighteenth-century development plan? Areas like around Leeson Street south of the Canal and the Docklands turned out very different.
