I woke up to a lot of greenery today and was reminded that it was St. Patrick’s Day. We don’t get the day off but a lot of people around these parts are into green beer and all of that. Which does not have much to do with the origin of the day. More on that here. I was hunting around for some wall paper to decorate my computer desktop as I do every year and came across some really cool map collection from the National Botanical Gardens of Ireland. I also came across some Irish counties maps from 1897 here. Want more search the David Rumsey Old Maps Online collection.
