Once the second capital of the British Empire, Dublin is a city of monumental architecture with a history both glorious and tragic. But it's also a city brimming with humanity: home to a friendly, gregarious people, who love to hear and tell stories. The combination has arguably produced more great writers per capita than any other place on earth. And yet, as any Dubliner can tell you, the great writers didn't know the half of it. This unique guide leads you behind the granite facades and postcard-perfect pictures to explore the heart and soul of the city through all its eccentricities and foibles. Encounter a whiskey-soaked windmill guarded by St. Patrick or visit a shrine for lovers with the relics of St. Valentine; pay your respects to the grave of a much decorated four-legged war hero or stop in for a pint at a haunted pub called the Gravediggers; discover a House of the Dead on an island you can reach on foot, or explore a literary micro-museum where everybody buys soap. 111 Places in Dublin takes you on an intimate, insider's tour of the Hibernian metropolis, at the end of which, you'll be an insider too.

An Oral History of University College Galway, 1930-80: A university in living memory
There are tales of lady superintendents supervising the moral well-being of female students; of dodgy digs and batty landladies; of eccentric professors and maternal tea ladies. There are scholarship students coming to Galway with a single change of clothes and very little else, except a keen desire for knowledge, de-mobbed American GIs, coming to study medicine in the 1950s and creating quite an impression on the female population, army cadets, nuns, and brothers who made up quite distinct strands of the student population, and generations of ordinary students from every part of the country and socio-economic background, who came to UCG for a good education - and to have some fun in the process. Our Price: : €25.00
