  • Description or summary of the book: Did you ever hear tell of Ogilvy's Mourning Warehouse in Grafton Street? Or maybe your granny went to see Monsieur Chylinkski - the modern Hercules! - in the New Theatre Royal in Abbey Street? And did you know that the youngest person imprisoned in Kilmainham was just five years old?Welcome to the world of Weird Dublin, a miscellany that revels in the strange, extraordinary and uncanny side of Dublin.In this wonderful collection, you'll find mystic societies and graveside disturbances; madmen and medicine men; suicide, murder, and cannibalism. There are messages from the Beyond, magical conjurors and animal-magnetists, and for 'chronic conditions' there are iodides of arsenic and sulphur.Above all, you'll discover a quirky and compelling history of Dublin, drawn from newspaper reports, advertisements, hearsay, anecdote and rumour. This is the city you thought you knew at its shocking and scandalous best.
