Customs House to Howth Head

– A History and Guide to the Dublin North Bay Area by Dennis McIntyre –

A newly published historical account of Dublin’s North Bay area will be formally launched on Wednesday, 1 February at Clontarf Castle Hotel, Castle Avenue, Clontarf, starting at 8pm.

Customs House to Howth Head: A History and Guide to the Dublin North Bay Area is author, Dennis McIntyre’s latest contribution to Irish, local, social and cultural history. The trek – from the stately Customs House in the city centre to the wild and charming Howth Head – is documented in all its facets, angles and aspects. Exhaustively researched, the book comes across as both informative and entertaining, in addition to being copiously illustrated with a well-chosen selection of images.

Dennis McIntyre is the previously published author of Meadow of the Bull: A History of Clontarf (1987) and has also written about other aspects of Irish history, such as in Bram Stoker and the Irishness of Dracula (2013) and Irish Nationalism, Irish Republicanism and the 1916 Easter Rising (2016).

This is not just a local history but rather, a series of local histories, covering Dublin’s Customs House and Docklands areas, North Strand, Summerhill, Ballybough, Fairview, Marino, Donnycarney, Clontarf, Killester, Raheny, Kilbarrack, Bayside, Donaghmede, Baldoyle, Sutton and Howth. It has everything that local history should have – and that bit extra.

Customs House to Howth Head: A History and Guide to the Dublin North Bay Area is published by Shara Press. It is available to buy online (RRP €19.99). It will also be on sale on the day of the launch at Clontarf Castle Hotel on 1 February, where the author will be on hand to sign copies. Joe Harrington of Sunshine Radio will provide the keynote address while Ciaran Murphy, of Near FM radio, will perform the introductions.

Name It, Share It, Replace It! A Practical Guide for Managing Thoughts and Feelings by Mattie Slattery (Ireland/UK edition)

Unfortunately, many people tend to opt for the scenic route when it comes to their peace of mind and well-being. If you take this direction, you will spend most of your precious time stuck in some stage of your life, trying to deal with emotional and spiritual pain of one kind or another.

Sadly, during these times, some people will lose their minds and others will even lose their lives. However, this will only happen if you allow your mind to trick you into thinking that it is in charge. Some people can be so deceived that they allow their minds to take full control and run completely wild. They live out their lives with heads full of troublesome thoughts and hearts full of hurt feelings.

This need not be you. If you are willing to accept that you are in charge of your own feelings, attitudes, thoughts, and emotions (FATE), then you will thrive using the approach set out in these pages. This will bring changes and challenges into your life, that’s for sure, but that’s what life is all about: changing and adapting as you grow and develop.

Remember, it is not the strongest or the fittest people who survive and prosper but those who are willing to adapt to the changes and challenges of life. You have the power to control your FATE, but it will control you if you let it. This is a simple fact of life.
