In her new book O’Connell Street, The History and Life of Dublin’s Iconic Street (The O’Brien Press) she delves into the history and transformation of Dublin’s famous O’Connell Street, from dirt path to the main thoroughfare of the capital city.

Enjoy tales of the  histories of landmark buildings such as the Gresham Hotel, Savoy Cinema and the GPO, along with the rich assortment of residents who once called Sackville Street home. Learn all about the statues and monuments on the street including the two gorgeous monuments to Daniel O’Connell and Charles Stewart Parnell and the variety of individuals celebrated in-between them.

Nicola Pierce

Nicola Pierce published her first book for children, Spirit of the Titanic, to rave reviews and five printings within its first twelve months. City of Fate, her second book, transported the reader deep into the Russian city of Stalingrad during World War II. The novel was shortlisted for the Warwickshire School Library Service Award, 2014. Nicola went on to bring seventeenth-century Ireland vividly to life in Behind the Walls (2015), a rich emotional novel set in the besieged city of Derry in 1689, followed by Kings of the Boyne (2016), a moving and gritty account capturing the Battle of the Boyne (1690), which was shortlisted for the Library Association of Ireland (LAI) awards. In 2018 Nicola delved in to the true stories of the passengers, crew and the legacy of the fated ship Titanic, in her illustrated book of the same name.
