Reinventing Dublin's docklands

NIAMH MOORE

This book examines the evolution of the Dublin docklands; looks at the politics of property development in the 18th and 19th centuries; and illustrates how the decline of this area in the mid-20th century was similar to the fate of many other ports. It offers an up-to-date and detailed account of the changes that have altered the physical and social fabric of this area beyond recognition and highlights some of the difficulties along the way, including the controversy and debates over the future of Spencer Dock and the problems of dealing with contamination at the Grand Canal Dock.
