The Little Book of Blackrock

The Little Book of Blackrock

Blackrock is a noted residential area on Dublin’s south side, close to Dublin Bay. Once a small fishing village, its modern streets are lined with centuries of historical interest, from old houses and churches to one of the oldest roads in the country. From schooldays to sporting greats, a host of famous people have had their beginnings here. Éamon de Valera, Seamus Heaney and Bob Geldof have all taught at various academic institutions in the area, and Brian O’Driscoll learned to play rugby at Blackrock College. A reliable reference and handy guide to Blackrock past and present, this book can be dipped into time and again to reveal something new about the people, heritage and secrets of Blackrock.
