Kennerk, Barry

Barry Kennerk graduated from
Dublin City University with a PhD in history in 2014. This is his fifth
book. When his third title, Moore Street: The Story of Dublin’s Market District
(Mercier Press) was published in 2012, it garnered critical acclaim and was
praised by current Lord Mayor of Dublin, Nial Ring, as an authoritative
work. Since then, he has continued to
write on an occasional freelance basis for newspapers at home and abroad
including The Irish Times and New York Times.  He currently teaches English and history at
Belvedere College, Dublin, and he is married with two daughters.
