Broadcaster and historian Éamonn Mac Thomáis tours his favourite parts of historical Dublin in the 1979 television series 'Dublin - A Personal View'.
Mac Thomáis begins his journey from Cornmarket on Thomas Street where he can see the seven Liberties of Dublin from the Liberty of Saint John to the Liberty of St Patrick's Cathedral. His journey through the Liberties continues on Francis Street with its auction rooms and antique shops, the Tivoli Theatre, and the Iveagh Market where
You can get anything from a pair of cowboy boots, a straight pair of cord jeans, or you can get Grandad shirts by the thousand. The Iveagh is worth a visit any day of the week.
'Dublin - A Personal View: The Liberties' was broadcast on 19 June 1979. Part 2 was broadcast on 26 June 1979. The programme was filmed and produced by David Shaw Smith.
