Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grafton Street is one of the two principal shopping streets in Dublin city centre, the other being Henry Street. It runs from St. Stephen's Green in the south. In 2008, Grafton Street was the fifth most expensive main shopping street in the world, at 5,621/m . The street was named after Henry FitzRoy, 1st Duke of Grafton, the illegitimate son of Charles II of England who owned land in the area. The street was developed from a then existing country lane by the Dawson family in 1708, after whom the parallel Dawson Street is named. After O'Connell Bridge was built to span the River Liffey, Grafton Street turned from a fashionable residential street into a busy cross-city route. Since the 1980s, the street has been mostly pedestrianised, with the exception of the short stretch running between Nassau Street and College Greenshow more
