A miscellany of dark materials spanning several centuries and showing the reader the strange, the occult, the lurid and the uncanny side of Dublin.

Did you ever hear tell of Ogilvy’s Mourning Warehouse in Grafton Street? Or maybe your granny went to see Monsieur Chylinkski – the modern Hercules! – in the New Theatre Royal in Abbey Street? And did you know that the youngest person imprisoned in Kilmainham was just five years old?

Welcome to the world of Weird Dublin, a miscellany that revels in the strange, extraordinary and uncanny side of Dublin. In this wonderful collection, you’ll find mystic societies and graveside disturbances; madmen and medicine men; suicide, murder, and cannibalism. There are messages from the Beyond, magical conjurors and animal-magnetists, and for ‘chronic conditions’ there are iodides of arsenic and sulphur.

Above all, you’ll discover a quirky and compelling history of Dublin, drawn from newspaper reports, advertisements, hearsay, anecdote and rumour. This is the city you thought you knew at its shocking and scandalous best.
