Brian Siggins

LOCAL historian Brian Siggins will give a tour of the area from Sandymount to Irishtown on Thursday, as part of the Dublin City Council 'Let's Walk & Talk' scheme. The walk starts at 2pm from Sandymount Green and will last 90 minutes.

The community initiative is a way for people to stay healthy, meet people and learn about Dublin city. This initiative comprises weekly walks in various parts of the city, themed historical walking tours and other special events.

Last year, a new strand to this initiative was launched, 'New Shores, Ancient Footprints', the purpose of which is to educate people about new communities that exist.
