Glasnevin is one of the most fascinating and historic area in all of Dublin. From its foundation, through the times of the Plantations and the Battle of Clontarf, it has borne witness to some of the most pivotal events in Irish history. The famous Glasnevin cemetery is widely regarded as one of the most historical significant sites in the nation, and is the last resting place of Charles Stewart Parnell and Michael Collins, amongst many others.
Alongside being a showcase of Ireland's historic past, it is also a beautiful and historic area in its own right, and in this illustrated history, Maurice Curtis has created a vibrant and valuable record for all those with an interest in its life and times. 128 Illustrations, black and white
