It is one of the great fortresses of Europe, and was nicknamed Ireland's Bastille. It was here that the King's Viceroy ran the government of Ireland, here that official functions and state entertainment were held. These reached their peak in the late 19th century.

Here, in St Patrick's Hall, the Presidents of Ireland are now inaugurated

The Irish 100 : a ranking of the most influential Irish men and women of all time by Peter Costello( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Irish cultural historian, Peter Costello, has assembled a list of his most important countrymen and women, but this list is bound to arouse controversy. Should St. Patrick, who was not born in Ireland, be placed first? Peter Costello argues that the new culture he brought to Ireland defined what the Irish were to become. For earlier generations Charles Parnell, ranked number three, was the uncrowned king of Ireland, but many today believe Mary Robinson, who appears in sixth position, represents what modern Ireland aspires to." "The Irish 100 considers contributions to all aspects of Irish culture, from poets to politicians, pop stars to explorers, philosophers to scientists. It celebrates the influence of such diverse people as Patrick Sarsfield, Michael Collins, William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, Sybil Connolly, Ernest Shackleton and Bob Geldof. It also cites controversial figures from the recent history of Irish politics on both sides of the divide; Ian Paisley, John Hume, Gerry Adams. From ancient Celtic times through to today, this well-written and researched volume offers vivid and accurate portraits of the most influential Irish men and women throughout history."--BOOK JACKET
