The Bombing of Dublin’s North Strand was one of the least accounted for event in the states history. This book gives a detailed description of the events that happened that night and the damage of the after shock.

A fascinating historical account of one of the least written about events in Irish History. For almost two thirds of a century this event was never written about. Finally, near the end of the century both the Irish Military Archive and Dublin City Archive declassified their documents on the bombing — some stamped “Secret” for sixty years.

This book contains mainly eye witness accounts of that terrifying night. Homes and shops in the North Strand were largely demolished, 2,250 buildings in the city suffered some bomb damage, over forty people were killed, about 100 seriously injured, many more wounded. Hospitals and morgues filled within hours. Almost 2,000 people were rendered homeless refugees.

For such a devasting event it is a shame that it has not been widely documented.
