by Brendan Nolan
signed and dedicated copies @ €18.95

phoenix park coverThe Phoenix Park, one of the biggest enclosed parks in the world, provides a breath of fresh air amid the urban sprawl of modern Dublin.

Brendan Nolan's comprehensive guide to the Phoenix Park covers its origins and history, buildings and monuments, wildlife, literary associations, local lore, military use, sports, self-guided walks, and its future in an urban environment.

The author provides detailed histories and descriptions of all of the landmarks in the Park, including the Zoo, Áras an Uachtaráin, Farmleigh, Ashtown Castle, the American Ambassador's Residence, and Garda Headquarters.

He touches on the infamous murders of 1882, the Eucharistic Congress of 1932, and the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1979, not to mention an early U2 concert on the park racecourse.

This book is of interest to tourists and visitors, to Dubliners in general, and to anyone interested in this most historic and scenic park
