Donnybrook Then & Now
Beatrice M. Doran
Donnybrook is one of the most iconic and affluent areas of South County Dublin, a picturesque enclave known for its wide leafy roads and fine houses. In this new work, librarian and historian Dr Beatrice Doran explores its vibrant past by contrasting forty-five archive images with the modern photographs of Vincent Clarke. Accompanied by detailed and informative research, each page tells a story of change, looking at aspects of suburbia, architecture, transportation and commerce, and, of course, remembering some of the local people who helped to make Donnybrook what it is today.
This book will be of great interest to all who know the area, and will be a vital and lasting record of the changing face of Donnybrook.
