About This Book

It is generally agreed that the first recorded mention of Terenure came in 1216, when Hugh de Barnewall was granted the lands of Terenure and Kimmage. Over the next 800 years, this townland reshaped itself throughout the Victorian and Edwardian periods, and grew to be the bustling metropolitan suburb it is today. Cafés, bookshops and restaurants nestle beside churches, synagogues and the wonderful amenities of Bushy Park and the River Dodder. In this new book by author and local historian Joe Curtis, the reader can explore the history and development of Terenure from its earliest days.
