dlr LexIcon’s Local Studies Librarian Nigel Curtin has produced two new informative leaflets for local history enthusiasts. The first, Starter for Ten provides suggestions for a general introduction to the history of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and includes such classics as Peter Pearson’s Between the Mountains and the Sea and Christiaan Corlett’s Antiquities of old Rathdown. Several of the chosen titles include links to the online version of the book, perfect for Lockdown reading!
askabout…dlr gives a handy overview of material relating to this area on the AskAboutIreland website, aimed at both primary students and the general interest historian. Subjects are wide-ranging - from Baths and Bathing, Martello Towers, Larkin’s Forge, the Big Houses of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and Wild Flowers of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. Direct links are provided for all of the topics. These leaflets are available online here and will also be available in all dlr branch libraries when we reopen.
