Malahide

FOUND IN:

The castle of Malahide, a few miles north of Dublin on the coast, for many centuries was the home of the Talbot family, though it is now open to the public and owned by Fingal County Council. In the first five chapters of Rutherfurd's second Irish book, the struggles of the devout, Catholic Walsh family, and their attempt to keep their faith, and their ancient lands, are to some extent modelled on the family of Talbot of Malahide.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
RHUBARB - During the three centuries before the nineteenth, China had become so cut off from Europe that senior mandarins were quite unsure where Britain was. They’d even been told that the western barbarians needed to import herbal rhubarb from China (a medicine), and that they would die if they couldn’t get it.
