I also try to be a historian, and have written some books on the history of Enniskerry, as well as a study of early school houses in County Wicklow, Ireland, now available on Google books. I also maintain a blog on some aspects of the history of Dublin’s streets. When not working or doing history, I enjoy spending time in my garden and travelling with my partner, Matthew.
