Meath Street and Francis Street in Dublin's Liberties are two of the most historically significant streets in Dublin, with their origins rooted in the expansion of the medieval western suburb of the city. Their building stock has seen much change in recent years but many historic buildings remain, some of which are amongst the oldest in Dublin. Today the streets play an important role in the social and commercial life of the Liberties, with a distinctive character that is worth protecting. Learn about some of the earliest estate management in Dublin, the 'Dutch Billy' legacy, and the commercial enterprises of the Victorian period. This book will bring you on a journey through the social and architectural history of Meath Street and Francis Street.
