A Ramble About Tallaght: History, People, Places

by Albert Perris

A fascinating history of an ancient place, now utterly transformed by progress and modernity, a place unrecognisable even to those who lived there in the 1950s. From the first mention of Tallaght in legend in the Book of Invasions, through early Christian monastic settlements, castles and grand residences, Fenian raids and the Battle of Tallaght, car and motorcycle racing and an aerodrome, the rise and fall of a chocolate factory and a pioneering telecommunications firm, Albert Perris tells the often-surprising story of Tallaght. The once-tiny village in Dublin's foothills changed utterly towards the end of the twentieth century, with a massive population explosion and huge modernisation.

This accessible, entertaining and occasionally humorous book is beautifully presented with carefully selected and arranged images, photographs and original illustrations by the acclaimed illustrator Michael O'Brien.
