Rathmines lies on the south bank of the Grand Canal, stretching out as far as Rathgar and bordered on two sides by Ranelagh to the east and Harold’s Cross to the west. It is one of the country’s most well-known suburbs, home to heads of government, vast swathes of students and local families alike. The colorful array of public houses have become institutions for many over the years, and its landmarks, the old Stella Cinema, the clock tower and the famous green dome of the Mary Immaculate church, have been forged in the memories of countless generations. This is an area of Dublin that holds a very particular resonance for many people all over Ireland. In his latest book, writer and historian Maurice Curtis takes the reader on a visual tour of Rathmines through the decades, recounting both the familiar and the forgotten, those features and events that may have faded over time. From the Battle of Rathmines in the 17th century (that changed the course of Irish history) to the achievements of Irish Independence and beyond in the 20th century, Dr. Curtis charts the development of this nationally important suburb that mirrors the changing face of Ireland itself. Illustrated with more than 150 archive photographs, this fascinating book pays fi tting tribute to the place Rathmines has carved in the history of all who have passed through it.

"In the nineteenth century the expanding Dublin middle class deserted the city for the suburbs, creating nine independent townships. This book examines the impact that these suburban towns had on the greater Dublin area ... The author explores the civic achievements of the townships in the areas of water supply, main drainage, public lighting, road-building, refuse-disposal, electricity supply, and the provision of town halls, public libraries, technical schools and public baths. The reaction at township level to the huge political changes in the 1914-1922 period is also explored, as are the attempts by Dublin Corporation, finally successfully in 1930, to extend its boundaries to include the townships"--From publisher's description.

What If Alternative Views Of Twentieth Century Irish History

What If? is an entertaining, thoughtful, provocative and original look at some of the milestones of twentieth century Irish history that offers a glimpse of what might have been. We all know that there was nothing inevitable about much of modern Ireland’s history. Things could have turned out very differently, so it is natural to wonder what would have happened if certain events had never occurred or happened in a different way. What If? is the thought-provoking, enjoyable and insightful book that explores this conceit as its starting point, asking of key events in twentieth-century Ireland: ‘what if?’ Based on Diarmaid Ferriter’s acclaimed RTÉ Radio One series, the book looks at twenty events in twentieth-century Ireland, each of which was discussed on Ferriter’s show with two experts, and speculates on how things might have developed had circumstances been different. In doing so, Ferriter also sheds much new light on what actually did happen, how Ireland changed during the course of the twentieth century and the experiences of those who lived through it. The big questions are tackled: what if there had been no 1916 Rising? What if Ireland had been invaded during World War II? What if there had been no programmes for economic expansion? What if Mary Robinson had not been elected president in 1990? But the book also poses other, less obvious, questions: what if James Joyce and Samuel Beckett had stayed in Ireland; if Britain had blocked Irish immigration in the 1950s; if there had been no Late Late Show or Magill magazine; if Bishop Eamon Casey had never met Annie Murphy; or if John Charles McQuaid had never been Archbishop of Dublin? What If? Alternative Views of Twentieth-Century Ireland: Table of Contents Introduction What if there had been no Late Late Show? What if there had been no pro-life amendment referendum in 1983? What if there had been no Magill magazine? What if John Charles McQuaid had not been appointed Archbishop of Dublin in 1940? What if Ben Dunne had not gone on a golfing trip to Florida in 1992? What if Bishop Eamon Casey’s secret had not been discovered? What if there had been no 1916 Rising? What if the Treaty ports had not been returned in 1938? What if the Blueshirts had attempted a coup in 1933? What if de Valera had stood down as leader of Fianna Fáil in 1948 instead of 1959? What if Donogh O’Malley had not introduced free secondary education in 1967? What if the Irish Press had not closed down in 1995? What if James Joyce and Samuel Beckett had stayed in Ireland? What if Frank Duff had not established the Legion of Mary in 1921? What if the Jim Duffy tape had not been released during the 1990 presidential election? What if Proportional Representation had been abolished in 1959 or 1968? What if T. K. Whitaker had not been appointed Secretary of the Department of Finance in 1956? What if the members of U2 had gone to different schools in the 1970s? What if Britain had imposed restrictions on Irish immigration in the 1950s? What if Noël Browne had not been involved in Irish politics?
