Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dalkey is an urban area in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County, Ireland. It is part of the larger town of D n Laoghaire. It was founded as a Viking settlement and became an important port during the Middle Ages. According to John Clyn, it was one of the ports through which the plague entered Ireland in the mid-14th century. In modern times, Dalkey has become a thriving seaside suburb and a minor tourist attraction. The town is named after Dalkey Island, just offshore. The name is a meld of the Irish deilg (meaning "thorn") and the Old Norse y (meaning "island"). The Island is the Shape of a thorn, Hence, "Thorn Island" (Deilg Inis) Inis means Island in Irish.show more
