CLARE LIBRARY.. where would we be without it..

Irish researchers who are lucky enough to have Co Clare ancestry, have the most amazing and detailed resources at our fingertips... and we don't even have to leave home...
If you don't already, then I suggest you subscribe to the Clare County Library Blog... always full of so many great hints, news of new resources and definitely showing that libraries are about more than books.

Just take a look at this....

Clare Genmaps - new feature: distribution of monuments and townlands mapped

In Clare Genmaps, our online maps system, you can now select categories of monuments, and townlands grouped by their civil parishes, and see their distribution throughout County Clare. In the Features tab, click on the arrow beside Monuments and select one or more category of monument. The map will then show the distribution throughout County Clare of that monument type. You can then click on any monument to be brought to its dedicated web page. You can also combine categories by holding down the Ctrl button and select multiple monument types to see their combined distribution.

The image above shows the distribution of cairns in County Clare. Click on the image to be brought to the appropriate map.

The same procedure can be done for the Townlands by Civil Parishes. Select a parish and the map will show the distribution of townlands within that parish. Click on any of these townlands to be brought to each townland's dedicated web page.
