We aim to provide a prompt mail order service at reasonable cost. But you may well prefer to buy locally in an outdoor store, book shop or newsagent. Here is a list of retailers that stock some or all of our maps. Please do let me know if you find them short of stock for any reason. I will then contact them to renew their stock or else delete them from this list. If you can't purchase locally and think you should be able to, please ask your local newsagent etc. Thanks.

Talk on Mount Leinster & Blackstairs region, Thursday 10 October at 7pm in Bunclody Library.
Barry Dalby, surveyor, cartographer and map publisher of East West mapping will give a talk on Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs mountain region - a very interesting mountain region in its own right. Barry will talk about the various aspects of these hills, some of the people that live(d) there, local placenames etc. with a focus on the landscape, geography, wildlife, local interest etc.
Launched just this week, new website and phone app guides for the Barrow river and Barrow Way.
Apologies if you were trying to access this site 1-4 August 2013. Our web hosting provider had a serious systems failure - all should be OK now.
On the Saturday of Bunclody’s Gathering Week (July27), some walks are being organised in the Blackstairs Mountains, which act as a beautiful backdrop to the town. From these hills on a clear day, you can see half of Ireland!
There will be three walks - one fairly strenuous, one medium walk, and a fairly easy walk. The hardest will be about 20 km with ascent of 1100 metres; medium will be about 14 km with 700 metres ascent and the easier one will follow the path of the John Murray Radio walk which attracted a huge crowd to the area last year.

This new map of Blackstairs, Mount Leinster and The Barrow Valley is now available from our website. Printed at 1:25,000 scale, the map covers from Bagenalstown to Bunclody and Ballywilliam to The Rower, an area of c.650 square kilometres. To facilitate this, the map is printed both sides of the sheet with an overlap at the Scollagh Gap (Sculloge Gap). Printed on tough Enduro paper, the map is both water resistant and very tough. Retail price is €9.95.
We have recently published second editions of two of our maps: 1) Dublin & North Wicklow Mountains and 2) Lugnaquilla & Glendalough. These are now available in standard folded format and we also have a small quantity of unfolded, flat sheets. Please note that you do not need to set up a user account if you do not wish to.
