Sackville Street

FOUND IN:

This great thoroughfare on the north side of the Liffey in central Dublin is nowadays known as O'Connell Street. But in the days of the Ascendancy it was called Sackville Street, and as such it appears frequently in Rutherfurd's second Irish book, from the 'Ascendancy' chapter onwards. At one time it contained a column supporting a statue of Nelson, but this was blown up. For the time being, a tall spike has been placed in the middle of the street.

Until World War II, France was on the same time zone as London. After occupying the country in 1940, Germany forced France to conform with Berlin time, and this change has never been canceled.
