Map of Ireland in the Heroic Times

Stair na hÉireann/History of Ireland

A rare and hard to obtain map of Ireland in the Heroic Times, found in Standish O’Grady’s History of Ireland.

Here is an effort to map the lands most associated with Ireland’s mythologies and heroes and even charts the course of the Children of Lir from the House of Donn to the Isle of Rachlin.

Sadly, the image quality is not great, but careful examination reveals the traditional territories, haunts, and settings for some of Ireland’s great people and myths.
