These maps show the different counties in Ireland from which New Zealand’s Irish immigrants emigrated. In the period 1840–53 most came from the area around Dublin, where a number of soldiers were recruited, and from Munster in the south-west, where the famine had hit hard. At this stage the numbers from Ulster, in the north-east, were not great.
