Fingal, 1603-60

Contending Neighbours in North Dublin

By Maighread Ni Mhurchadha

This tightly written study examines all aspects of Fingal (north Dublin) in a period that saw its transformation in every sphere - the beliefs, values and norms of the community, religion, marriage and the family, education, literature, the legal profession, work, crime, and leisure pursuits. The result is a fascinating case study of the social and cultural realities of early modern Ireland.
