Ordnance Survey: The Complete Road Atlas of Ireland (1:210,000)
This is a 107 page spiral bound atlas published in 2004 by OSI and their
Northern Ireland counterparts. Unfortunately the depiction of
controlled access divided highway interchanges and junctions is very poor.
It is generally impossible to tell whether a junction is a full or half junction
and which manoeuvres are possible. Only N and R road numbers are shown (no
indication of E or C road numbers). The city maps are devoid of road detail,
car park information or other POIs. ISBN 1-903974-70-4
