On the right-hand side of the map you will find a section with the heading "Reference". This includes very useful information for the Grand Jury.

It tells us how much arable land and how much land covered by mountain and bog were in each of five baronies of Rathvilly, Carlow, Forth, Idrone & St. Mullins.

Based on the information given, which of the five baronies do you think was likely to pay higher taxes and rates?
