Rathmines lies on the south bank of the Grand Canal, stretching out as far as Rathgar and bordered on two sides, by Ranalegh to the east and Harolds Cross to the west.

It is one of the countrys most well-known suburbs, home to heads of government, vast swathes of students and local families alike. The colourful array of public houses have become institutions for many over the years, and its landmarks, the old Stella Cinema, the clock tower and the famous green dome of the Mary Immaculate church, have been forged in the memories of countless generations. In this book, Maurice Curtis, takes the reader on a visual tour of Rathmines through the decades, recounting both the familiar and the events and places that may have faded over time. Some might remember the trams running through the main street, but who remembers the riots of the 30s outside the Town Hall?

This and much more is captured in this timeless volume, which pays fitting tribute to the place Rathmines has carved in the history of all who have passed through it.
