Tidy

An English name: the fictional Tidy family come to Ireland in the Middle Ages, as did many small-time English merchants and craftsmen. Sometimes servants of the Church, by the nineteenth century they have joined the important Quaker community in Dublin. Their story is told through both of the two books of Edward Rutherfurd's Irish saga, beginning in the 'Dalkey' chapter.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
