Do you know which Dublin area is named after a British naval victory in Panama, or where in Dublin the land speed record was broken in 1903? How did Henry Moore, Earl of Drogheda have four streets named after him? Orpen Press is delighted to announce the publication of The Complete Guide to the Streets of Dublin by Neal Doherty, best-selling author of The Complete Guide to the Statues and Sculptures of Dublin City, which will answer these questions and many more in this entertaining journey through our capital.

About the Book: The story of Dublin can be explored through its streets and public spaces. From the Vikings onwards, the city streets were shaped by abbeys, churches, developers, viceroys, local heroes and villains, tradespeople, playwrights, poets, writers and many more besides. From the Battle of Clontarf to the Battle of Hume Street,

The Complete Guide to the Streets of Dublin City unveils the mysteries of almost every street, lane, alley and public park in the city between the two canals. Breaking the city into eleven sections, it explores not just the origins of the street names, but also the architecture, the events and the people that shaped and reshaped the streets we walk on every day. With full-colour photographs and detailed maps, The Complete Guide to the Streets of Dublin City will entertain and inform visitors and locals alike, while providing a beautiful and practical walking guide to the history and the architecture of the capital city. 

About the Author: Neal Doherty is the best-selling author of The Complete Guide to the Statues and Sculptures of Dublin City (Orpen Press, 2015). A true-blue Dubliner, he is a Fáilte Ireland qualified tour guide who has been introducing tourists to the history and culture of Dublin for many years.
