Retail in Dublin City Centre 1790-1990

Are you interested in the history of some of Dublin’s past and present retailers?

Well, the Central Library are hosting a new series by Dublin City Council Historian in Residence Dr Mary Muldowney which takes a look at retail streets like Henry Street and how they have changed over the last 100 years or so. The series features Dublin favourites Arnotts, Clerys, Roches Stores and other major retailers that have disappeared; as well as featuring the small businesses.

In her opening talk on 8 February, Mary introduced us to the history of retail in Dublin City Centre.

The next talk, Shopping in Dublin City Centre 1790-1990. Henry Street and the women who worked there is on 8 March at 7pm.

This lecture will take place on Zoom and, in honour of International Women’s Day on 8th March, it will focus on the women who ran and worked in the many retail businesses on Henry Street.
