The story of Dun Laoghaire Harbour


You’d be filled with wonder to hear claps like thunder
And rocks burst asunder in the atmosphere;
With brave stone-helvers and jolly miners,
From different nations you’ll find them there.”

Ballad on the visit of King George IV to Dún Laoghaire, 1821


Written by Dr Séamus Cannon with Gráinne O'Malley and Colin Scudds, You'd be Filled with Wonder tells the story of the 200 year old Dun Laoghaire Harbour.  This is a story of shipwrecks, forgotten heroes, prison ships & tordepoes! Above all it is a human story of poverty, hardship and true determination.
