A lovely jigsaw showing the provinces of Ireland with famous landmarks. Hidden under the pieces is a history of Ireland, packed full of historical events down through the ages from the Stone Age 8000 years ago up to Ireland’s declaration of neutrality in 1939.

The following line is printed on the bottom of this jigsaw: ‘Heritage is what makes Ireland Irish – her natural and political history, her influences and influences on her, her language, culture and traditions. This illustrative map gives some directions as to how her past is living in her present.’
