A large engraved map of Galway

Abstract
  • A large engraved map of Galway, temp. Chas. II with many armorial bearings. Described in Hardiman's History of Galway.Pádraig Lenihan 3 June 1999, in a letter to the library, writes that the map was 'in the view of most authorities drawn up as part of negotiations' with the Duke of Lorraine who was offered Galway city as his possession, as an inducement when the Irish royalists solicited military help from him. This was c1652. The map includes 'a feature (the bastioned fort outside the walls) which was in fact demolished in 1642', and 'a depiction of the Cromwellian siegeworks' which 'demand a date not earlier tha[n] 1652'.Laid on canvas by George Mullen 9 January 1816 who made the case in which it was thereafter kept.
