A portrait of life in South County Dublin. County Lines is a unique and remarkable miscellany of voices telling their own life stories and, by extension, the lives of the new communities that have grown up in South Dublin County.
County Lines builds into a kaleidoscopic portrait of life as experienced there over the past half century. Edited by poet and novelist Dermot Bolger, County Lines features stories both ordinary and remarkable about the lives of people who put down roots, built communities and turned bare walls of new houses into homes.
This book is uniquely about South Dublin County - Lucan and Tallaght, Clondalkin and Palmerstown, Newcastle and Firhouse, Templeogue and Rathfarnham. But more than that, it is a snapshot of a changing Ireland and of a city constantly renewing itself.
