Today, Drimnagh is a well-established suburb on the southside of the City of Dublin, but few realise the long and interesting history of this area. In this talk, we trace the changing face of the area through the centuries, from neolithic settlements and a medieval castle through to farmlands, brickfields, and the housing developments we see today.

This talk, led by Cathy Scuffil, Dublin City Council Historian In Residence for Dublin South Central and South East areas, promises to be a fascinating journey through the history of Drimnagh.

This talk is free to attend but booking is essential.


Catherine (Cathy) Scuffil (MA, BBS Hons) is Dublin City Council Historian In Residence for Dublin South Central and South East areas. Dublin born and reared, her master’s thesis research was published by Four Courts Press as The South Circular Road Dublin on the Eve of the First World War and an abridged version awarded the silver medal by the Old Dublin Society (2018).
