Thank you to all who joined us on Tuesday for the inaugural Water Heritage Trail of Thomas and James’s Street. It was a great success!
The tour began outside Dublin City Council offices where a brief historical description was given of Thomas and James’ Street in relation to the medieval city. Thomas Street and James’s Street lie along ‘Slighe Mór’, the great ancient Western route. It was one of the primary routes into the medieval city and is one of the oldest streets in Dublin. Such was it’s importance that the Anglo-Normans referred to Thomas and James’s Street collectively as the ‘Great Street’.
