The author Seamus Cannon and photographer Carole Cullen have created an affectionate and evocative celebration of the social and architectural heritage of the Co Dublin village of Monkstown. Today's Monkstown is largely the creation of the nineteenth century but also has a significant early history, both are beautifully written about and illustrated. There is also mention of the many Monkstown residents who made substantial contributions to society at home and abroad.
