Have you heard the story of ‘Bang Bang’ Dudley, who roamed the streets of Dublin shooting anyone who caught his eye? Or of ‘Lugs’ Brannigan, the city’s most famous detective? Do you know who the real Molly Malone was, or the story of Marsh’s Library, or how the devil himself came to the Hellfire Club? These and many more accounts of Dubliners and Dublin City fill this book, as told by Brendan Nolan, a professional storyteller who has been recording these tales for decades. These are the stories of real Dublin, the stories that are passed from generation to generation and which give this city its unique character. To know Dublin is to know these characters, these stories, and the legends which have grown up around them.
