About the Author:

Muiris de Buitleir has lived in Dublin all his life. Although he originally studied architecture at the Dublin Institute of Technology, Bolton Street, he found that his true interest lay with surveying and maps. He holds a master's degree in geographical information systems and is currently president of the Irish Institution of Surveyors. Now retired, he was a surveyor and cartographer with the Office of Public Works and subsequently geographical information systems manager with Duchas--the Heritage Service and the Department of the Environment. This book is the culmination of his interest in maps and his love of Dublin.
