Books Info:

Lewis' Dublin free pdf The principal wholesale market is in Smithfield, a narrow oblong area in the northeastern part of the city, the site of which is the property of the corporation, as part of their manor of Oxmantown: the market days for the sale of black cattle and sheep are Monday and Thursday, and for hay and straw, Tuesday and Saturday. There is also a considerable market for hay, straw, potatoes, butter, fowls and eggs in Kevin Street. Samuel Lewis created something of a literary sensation with his Topographical Dictionary of Ireland in 1837. It included a description of 3,255 places, including most towns and villages of any consequence, along with civil parish divisions. For each listing this informative source goes identifies its exact location by province, county, barony, direction and distance from the nearest major town or city. This is followed by population statistics from the 1831 census and often a brief history of the major events associated with the place. It is a major source on early nineteenth-century Ireland. Over 120 separate places were described for Dublin, almost 4% of the total. These range from Artane and Westpalstown in the northside to Ballybought in the city to Williamstown in the southside. Alternate spellings and names are given for many placenames. Extensive entries on Dublin - city and county - describe their origins, archaeology and history, industry, buildings, institutions, etc. Out-of-print for many years, the original work would cost [GBP]500-[GBP]1,000 today. So this volume gathers all the entries on Dublin City and County to make them available at an affordable price.
