More About This Title Enniskerry: A History


Enniskerry: A History describes the development of this beautiful village from its beginnings as a small settlement by a bridge crossing the Glencullen river to the vibrant center it is today. Using original research, eighteenth-century travel literature and the Powerscourt Papers, the author examines the development of the village over the last 200 years. He goes on to look at the lives of the people who have been a part of this history and how their stories are intertwined with the changing nature of education, religion, and social life of the area. Of course, no history of Enniskerry would be complete without an examination of the presence and influence of the Powerscourt Estate and how it has shaped the lives and the landscape of one of Ireland's most beautiful places.


Michael Seery is a committed local historian whose family have lived in Enniskerry for many years.
