North County Dublin in 1778

Look below to see the Taylor & Skinner 1778 map of North County Dublin. This map covers the area between Swords and the city centre.

Did you notice that along the top of the map it lists the distances (in miles and furlongs) between various different places and Dublin? Can you tell how many miles it was from Belfast to Dublin ?

What do you think this map was mainly used for, finding your way around Dublin city centre of for finding your way from Swords, Finglas or Santry to the outskirts of the city?

Don't forget that these were long distances before motorised transport such as cars and buses had been invented.
