When considering Elizabethan Ireland Bartlett maps are invaluable and his story, up to his beheading by Tyrconnel was absolutely facinating. Here is a review of J. H. Andrews, The Queen’s last map-maker; Richard Bartlett in Ireland, 1600-3 (Dublin 2008)

Yes I agree with lostexpectation: If the maps aren't online they aren't worth talking about. They don't have a copyright restrictions; anyone can take pictures of them at NLI or elsewhere and put them up. Since that apparently hasn't happened so far, Nem has got nothing interesting to say here.

Interesting review of that book in last Saturday's Irish Times. Book worth buying by anybody in the areas mapped.

The maps can be found in large print in a book by Gerard A. Hayes-McCoy called 'Ulster and other Irish maps c. 1600.' printed in Dublin in 1964. They're a few maps online but they are hard to find you can't appreciate the full detail of them. I would strongly recommend requesting this book from your local library I'm not sure if it has been reprinted since. The book is very large and I imagine expensive but well worth a look and Hayes-McCoy's commentaries are very informative and accurate.

Excellent detail there, he seems to have include Cavan, Monaghan and Armagh in Leinster. Clare is in Connaght and Kilkenny is split by the looks of it.

You do realise that if you have an original book of maps or actual maps from that period or earlier that they are worth a lot of money :)

I have a map of Ireland on my mattress, I must get it valued, I'd say it's quite old.
