'One of the most amusing and valid social/cultural/political history books of recent times' - The Sunday Times.
A history book that looks at things from a different angle! Come Here To Me! discusses everything from punk music and stand-up comedy venues to pirate radio stations and drug use in Dublin city. It talks about fire-fighters, newspaper boys, street gangs, gay bars and footballers, as well as our changing attitudes to feminism and sex.
Dublin’s social history, as seen through the eyes of these historians, is to be found hidden in the small details everywhere, from the design of its shopfronts to the graffiti scribbled on the walls of its pubs.In this beautifully illustrated paperback, Sam McGrath, Donal Fallon and Ciarán Murray bring the best of their hugely popular blog Come Here To Me: Dublin Life & Culture to a new audience.
Bringing a fresh, new perspective to their historical snapshots of the life of Dublin city, the authors have written a number of new articles for this publication. The book also features new images, alongside its healthy dose of bizarre and wonderful tales of Dublin’s hidden history.
