About: The docks is the trading hub of any major city and traditionally gave employment to multitudes of working-class people who also lived in its vicinity. However, as happened in other cities around the world during the latter half of the 20th century, the Dublin docklands workforce suffered from the introduction of increased mechanisation. This resulted in the area going into rapid decline until the advent of the Celtic Tiger heralded an era of regeneration. This book charts the history of the areas of inner city Dublin that comprise the docklands.
