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.

Dennis McIntyre is an author, historian, tour guide, broadcaster and former teacher. Originally from Sligo, he has lived on the northside of Dublin for a number of years and he has established a reputation as a local historian. In addition to his writing, Dennis McIntyre also serves as founder and director of Dublin North Bay Tourism and the Stoker Dracula Gothic Organisation.

About the Author

Brian Corvin was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1937 but he considers himself to be a citizen of the world.

His first book, The Dream Journey, was published in 2010 and this was followed, in 2016, by The Unity Project, which completed the cycle that he set out to achieve with his first book. His third book, The Compendium contains, in addition to poetry and haiku, some short stories and one-act plays as well as an autobiographical fragment. His latest book, The Unity of the Species: Realising Our Potential, outlines the path that he believes humanity must travel in the foreseeable future.

He has been inspired by Bahaullah, the prophet of globalisation but feels that his writing should be grounded in the here and now of the world that he finds around him
