Monkstown: A Victorian Village


Today's Monkstown is a creation of the nineteenth century,when the development of a commuter railway and the harbour of Dunlaoghaire ( then Kingstown) made it an attractive residential area. Created from the 13 century Monkstown Castle still available to view, this village has produced several scientists,distinguished humanitarians and was the home of two major international missionary movements. Monkstown still retains its Victorian atmosphere in the integrity of its architecture and in the intimate scale of its shops and above all retains a vigorous commitment to social justice. This book is an affectionate and evocative celebration of Monkstown's social and architectural heritage.
