'This book is superb... an excellent introduction to Dublin's trams.'
In the second volume in the Lost Tramways series to feature Ireland, the history of the trams that served Dublin and its environs are recalled. Although dominated by the system of Dublin itself, there were no fewer than three other tramways that served the area – the Dublin & Blessington, the Dublin & Lucan and the GNR(I)-owned Hill of Howth – that all had a fascinating history, with the Hill of Howth ultimately becoming the last first generation tramway to operate on the island of Ireland.
Locations featured include:
Lucan, Ballsbridge, Nelson Pillar, O’Connell Bridge, Parnell Monument, Bachelors Walk,Trinity College, Sandymount, Dun Laoghaire, Dalkey, Phoenix Park, Dartry, Rathmines, Terenure, Sutton Cross, Howth.
