Plan Of The City And Environs Of Dublin 1798

The sample is extracted from another excellent city map placed online by MAPCO at its own url http://dublin1798.com/. It shows the Dublin area, Richmond - Ringsend - Mt Pleasant - Phoenix Park and includes "existing and intended buildings, County Boundaries, North and South Divisions, and the Earl of Meath's Liberty."

The scale is "3½" : ½ Irish Mile". If, like me, this is your first encounter with an Irish Mile, according to Wikipedia it is, or was, 6,720 feet or 1.27 statute miles.
