True Dublin (2015)

I am proud to announce the release of my first book, True Dublin. It will be available online and in bookshops around mid-November (just in time for Christmas). I was asked to put together the book in September, 2013, and spent much of the next year working on it, as well as plenty of revising since. The whole project has been a challenging but I suppose ultimately rewarding experience. One great thing about researching the book, which mainly comprises a set of images of Dublin in the Victorian, Edwardian, and early independence eras, was that it spurred me to visit archives whose doors I would not otherwise have darkened. I also got to meet a lot of interesting people while undertaking research for the book.

The book can be pre-ordered here.
