Hidden Dublin Hopkins, Frank

ISBN: 9781856355919

Criminal incidents, accidents, whippings, beatings, jail escapes and hangings were all part of Dublin's brilliant parade in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, including actors, clergymen, scientists, politicians and rogues and rascals of every hue. Hopkins describes the poverty, soup kitchens, food riots, street beggars and workhouses that were all a feature of Dublin life. 


He also introduces us to the weird, wonderful, and often downright strange customs and pastimes of Dubliners stretching back to the Middle Ages, such as the bearing of balls annual parade by the citys bachelors and the ritual humiliation of would-be bridegrooms at the bullring.
