For many years Dundrum was just another stop on the railway between Harcourt Street and Bray; it was a village in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains that, despite its rich history, was often thought of as simply the best place to rest on a journey to Powerscourt or Enniskerry. Today it is a hugely popular hub of commerce and retail, attracting visitors from across the country.
In this new book by local historian Joe Curtis, the multi-faceted past of Dundrum is explored through a vibrant collection of illustrations and historical research, much of which has been previously unpublished. What emerges is a picture of the changing face of Ireland itself. 220 Illustrations, black and white
