5.0 out of 5 stars Fond History Revels Dublin's Soul, 15 Nov 2007
This review is from: Dublin: A View from the Ground (Hardcover)
As even the causal visitor to Dublin knows, the heart of the city is the combination of its unique people and the interesting architectural milieu left by so many of its previous illustrious citizens. Hegarty - a blow-in, rather than a true Dub born and bred - uses his observational standpoint to provide a fond and insightful history that reveals many surprising influences which have helped make the modern Fair City. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read from the Viking arrival to current transitions and Hegarty is a warm and astute guide. Although Cork will always be my top spot, future visits to Dublin have been greatly enhanced! A great book for those seeking to really know the place and go beyond the superficial tour book acquaintance.
