This particular area of Walshtown is new to orienteering even though it is on the 1987 map. The map has a good network of tracks and rides together with an amount of feature detail in some parts, in other places it has a large area of open woodland intersected by a single forest road with very sparse ground movement or feature detail.
The map is at 7,500 scale with 5M contours.
