More than 110 Sheela-na-gigs have been found in Ireland.
Some experts believe the mysterious stone carvings represent the wife of St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
Beatrice Kelly, Heritage Council Head of Policy & Research, said: 'Sheela-na-Gigs are very evocative symbols of the feminine in old Irish culture and their prominent positions in medieval churches and castles attests to the importance of the female in Irish society.
'As modern Ireland strives for equality in all aspects of life this map can help us all to understand the important place women have traditionally held within our culture and society.'Heritage Ireland mapped the location of every sculpture in the country using National Monument data.
Some researchers say they belong to the realm of vernacular folk deities associated with the life-giving powers of birth and death.
Until recently they were seen as figures representing the evils of lust or as ways of averting the ‘evil eye’.

Researchers have suggested the stone carvings, known as the Sheela-na-gigs, may represent fertility - or could even depict the wife of St Patrick.
Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of naked, old women exposing an exaggerated vulva. They are normally found in medieval tower-houses and churches.'We augmented this with images and information gathered from the museum sector and Sheela-na-Gig academics and enthusiasts.'This Sheela-na-Gig dataset is just one of many bespoke datasets we hope to provide in this manner.
