A note about the images. All the images posted have been drawn between December 2012 and January 2013, from both Google Maps and Bing Maps. There is slightly better coverage of parts of the west of Ireland on Bing rather than on Google which is why the current set of images includes more from Bing than from Google at the moment. I have also been recommended looking for access to the Ordnance Survey of Ireland’s collection of aerial photographs and this is on the list of research yet to be carried out with this project.¬†’s terms of service for the use of prints and screenshots are here
