Description


There was a time when the two most notorious red-light districts, not only in Ireland but in all of Europe, could be found on the streets of Dublin. Though the name of Monto has endured long in folk memory, the area known as Hell was equally notorious, feared, and renowned in its day. In his new work, Maurice Curtis explores the histories of these dark remnants of Dublin’s past, complete with their gambling, dueling, and vice, their rowdy taverns, and houses of ill repute.
