Event Description

Winter Lecture Marlay House Wednesday 7th February 7pm This Event MUST BE PRE-BOOKED Lecture Booking: dlrheritageevents@dlrcoco.ie

The short and narrow strip of coastline from Salthill to Battery Bridge has seen more transformations than any other part of Dún Laoghaire. Although it was the original village of Dunleary, the focus of the town began to move inland and eastward from about 1800. So the area developedits own unique history. A coffee-house,a flawed harbour, a Martello tower,an extension of the Metals, the West Pier, a hotel, a railway terminus, coalyards, a gasworks, livery stables, a major chemicals plant, a ballroom, a street market, a business centre, and apartment blocks have all contributed to the area as we now know it.
