Book excerpt: "The Rivers of Dublin is the revised new edition of a cherished study of Dublin's history - a unique examination of the water routes of Ireland's capital and the ceaseless activity they enabled and inspired. It proves, in short, that the history of Dublin is that of its rivers. The rivers, tributaries, and streams that have populated Dublin since its establishment have governed the expansion of the city and its quality of life, yet over time many of these water routes have become hidden from view. Clair Sweeney's work brings the ancient watercourses to the surface once more, breathing life into alternate maps of Dublin - excavating entire societies. Sweeney's position in the Dublin Corporation's Engineering Department gave him unparalleled access to places the most hardly know exist. The Rivers of Dublin, newly updated and beautifully redesigned, is a meticulous study of the watercourses that flow through Ireland's capital city, serving as a history of those who settled and thrived along their banks."
