Arran Henderson of Dublin Decoded tours leads this walk around one of the most richly-layered historic parts of Dublin city centre, featuring now-vanished but once mighty medieval monasteries, historic marketplaces and former prisons.  We’ll see how many of these long-vanished institutions still influence the street plan, the street names, and even the culture of Dublin, right up to the present day.  We’ll conclude at a fine 18th century courthouse that witnessed many of the most dramatic, bitter, and controversial trials in Irish history.
