Irish village. Viking town. English city. Proud European capital.
A Little History of Dublin is a high-speed history of life in the Irish capital. The key events are explained in short, digestible chapters, and the reader can expect to discover the complete history of Dublin in the time it takes to walk from Dollymount to Dalkey.
Incident, humour and humanity are privileged throughout this history in a hurry. Author Trevor White writes with affection but also with a clarity that reflects his experience of running a museum that celebrates the history, humour and hospitality of Dublin. The result is a crisp and colourful account of achievement and misadventure in a city that White calls Europe’s largest village.
