During library opening hours

Curated by Colin and Anna Scudds of Dún Laoghaire Borough Historical Society, in association with dlr Local Studies, this exhibition tells the fascinating history of the harbour over the past two centuries. It includes a detailed timeline and it covers some of the key figures such as Richard Toutcher, John Rennie and the early Harbour Masters, Lieutenant William Hutchison and the Hon. Capt. Francis George Crofton.

What were conditions like for the workers who lived on Dalkey Commons and close to the Harbour? What seafaring tragedies happened over the years? When did the last fog horn sound?
