Map illustration showing some of the amazing sights to see and activities to try along the stunning Wild Atlantic Way. Stretching from Cork in the south, up the west coast of Ireland and across the northern tip of the Ireland, the Wild Atlantic Way offers a little bit of something for everyone. Can’t wait to get back there myself.
An illustrated map showing important historical sites in Fingal, Co. Dublin during the 1916 Rising. This was part of an educational booklet which I also designed for Fingal County Council. Below you can see how the booklet folds out into an A2 size map which was used in the classroom to discuss the history of the area.
An illustrated map showing the routes taken by the Vikings leaving Norway, Sweden and Denmark on their way to Britain and Ireland. I’ve used mostly muted tones on this picture with just a touch of red on the viking ship sails, the scary sea monster and the rosy cheeks of the viking. He’s not too scary though, he might even be a bit smug. My home town, Dublin was visited by the Vikings or Ostmen around 841, where they settled. the name Dublin comes from the Norse Dyflin or “Black Pool”, referring to a dark tidal pool where the River Poddle entered the Liffey at the rear of Dublin Castle.

I drew this map showing historic Swords Castle and its surroundings as part of a brochure I designed for Fingal County Council.Swords Castle was built as the manorial residence of the first Anglo-Norman Archbishop of Dublin, John Comyn, around 1200 or a little later in Swords, just north of Dublin. The castle was never strong in the military sense, but is unusual in that the perimeter wall of 305 metres is far larger than normal for an Irish castle.
Illustrated map showing the parade route and locations of restaurants, cafes and shops in the town of Swords, Co. Dublin. The map was created along with illustrated posters and flyers to advertise the parade.
