Mappery For the love of maps

Clocha na hEireann

Dr Sara Hannafin sent us this geology gem representing the Ireland. A bit of browsing the internet gave me:

Clocha na hEireann is a collaborative 1916 commemoration work between stone masons from every corner of Ireland. They each used stone native to their county to produce a magnificent carving that represented some aspect of their cultural identity. Carvings included everything from county emblems to representations of local mythology, geographical features, architecture and history.
