A celebration of the progress of a Parish. This is a social and historical profile of the Parish of Taney in Dublin. The origins of this close knit parish and how it has developed over the years. This book explores the culture of this society and engages with the heart of a community.
Profile of the growth, evolution and influence of the Parish of Taney in Dublin. 21 June 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the dedication service in Christ Church Taney, now known colloquially in the neighbourhood as Taney Church. This book is a celebration of the progress of a Parish, it's cultural and societal role both within the Church of Ireland and in the broader community, and the many people who have been members. The origins of this close knit parish and how it has developed over the years are explored, and the history of the beautiful stained glass windows in Christ Church and the historic St Nathi's Church and graveyard. An important historical document, presented in a beautiful hardback book to treasure.
a most attractive and interesting book … an introduction to the parish and a valuable record of what has taken place … the author is to be commended on a fine and useful publication
a profusion of colour illustrations and many of these include people, rather than empty buildings, so giving the book a sense of being about a community rather than an institution
