Ann Marie Durkan – Animals in 20th Century Dublin

October 3, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

At the end of the 19th century there were around 8,000 horses and 4,000 pigs living in Dublin city while nearly 200,000 cattle and 300,000 sheep passed through each year.

In 1901, 803 Dubliners worked as cattle dealers, drovers, farriers, vets. Over the course of the 20th century most of these animals, and most of these jobs, disappeared.

Ann Marie Durkan will introduce the maps that she has prepared which locate these animals and animal-related businesses in Dublin City in 1911. She is an Irish Research Council funded PhD candidate in Dublin City University.
