Dún Laoghaire

Conan Kennedy’s Dún Laoghaire is different, both as a book and as a place. As a book it is interactive, with QR links throughout to bring the reader to further info, and as a place it is different because the town is essentially, the writer’s home town…as distinct from all the other home towns he’s lived in around the world. A combination of history,with a bit of comment, plus a selection of different walks in the area and (as usual with Conan Kennedy) a number of very interesting old photographs from his collection.
