After having a quite start to the new year I have finally found the time to update my Interactive Ruins Map. Having started this about a year ago it has turned into a complete nightmare with the amount of sites being added. Apparently Google only allows 200 Placemarks, so many of the sites that I put up to be visited were not showing. So the not so quick fix was to break the sites down by county. Hopefully this will make it much easier for people to navigate around. As always they will be updated on a weekly basis and are accurate to Google’s Street View.
So far I have maps done for Counties, Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Meath, Offaly, Tipperary, Waterford and of course Wicklow. I hope to add a lot more sites over the course of the year, so if you know of a site that I have not yet covered, please let me know. I would love to add it to my list. On that note I have had to remove the complete Ruinhunter Map as it waas causing so many problems. Some of you may have used this to explore sites which I had not yet visited. Well the good news is that the map is still accessible for the public and can be found HERE.
This map will no longer be used to update sites visited, but will be used to track sites that I plan to visit, Once I explore a site it will be removed from this map and updated to the relevant county map. If you are interested in following my footsteps and exploring any of these sites, you are more than welcome to download the Google .KML file and upload it to your SatNav for ease of use. Hopefully this won’t cause any further headaches. As always your thoughts and comment on this New Look page would be most welcome.
