Images Of Ireland: Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown
The History Press
A new and updated version of this rich visual record of one of Dublin's most famous suburbs.
Pat Walsh has worked with the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Libraries to compile this collection of over 200 old postcards, posters, newspaper clippings and photographs stretching back into the late 19th Century. This book celebrates the rich culture of this Dublin area by giving its reader a visual tour through the past. From the Dublin Mountains down to the sea, the area's history, heritage and people are captured through a collection of over 200 archive images. Through an excellent collection of images, this book brings to life Dun Laoghaire's daily life, work, leisure and entertainment history. The collection should be of interest to social historians, students and locals living in this historic suburb. Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown is one of the four Local Authority areas in Dublin County and stretches from the border with Wicklow in the south to the sea coast to the east and North as far as Booterstown and Milltown. It includes areas like Dalkey, Killiney, Foxrock, Dundrum, Ballybrack and Dun Laoghaire itself.
