Royal Canal

In advance of starting to roll out a full map of the Royal Canal with inset maps at a larger scale, I have slightly refreshed the map that was on the site, which will act as the front page to the Royal Canal section of the site.

Share certificates

No, I’m not selling shares or looking for money (I develop and maintain this site as a labour of love).

Many years ago, I purchased half a dozen cancelled share certificates of old Irish companies (5 railway and 1 mining) and I have added a section to the site to display these, which can be found here.

I have also made a few small administrative changes, such as automating the copyright date at the foot of each page, which I have updated a few pages with and will be rolling out to all pages as time progresses.

The IH Venues page has also had a refresh, with the links to such locations now in 2 columns, giving a better look. I took the opportunity to check all links were valid and removed a couple that are no longer present.

Gazetteer update

I hadn’t planned on providing running updates of my progress in creating/uploading photo gallery pages. However, as one of the pages so loaded is that of Clondalkin (demolished as part of the Kildare Route Project), I felt that a blogpost linking to this and noting that counties Carlow, Cavan, Cork and Dublin are now also online was appropriate.
