With the return of one Lord Iveagh to The Liberties, its worth a look back at the enormous legacy of the Guinness family to the area, the city and Ireland. From palatial homes to houses for the working man; from endowed public buildings and institutions to the creation of public parks; from a market leader to a splendid market hall, from the iconic Bayno to the Iveagh Hostel for Men.
The historian Donal Fallon looks back at the legacy of the first Earl of Iveagh, Edward Cecil Guinness, who turned his considerable fortune to works to improve the lives of many ordinary Dubliners. The podcast features on Donal’s excellent Three Castles Burning series.
