From these green heights
"From These Green Heights is a journey through the lives of two Dublin families. Spanning four decades, the action moves from the 1960s when Dessie first glimpses the landmark Ballymun Towers, to the night in 2004 when his young daughter packs up to leave the flat that has been their home. From These Green Heights is a hidden history of modern Dublin, exploring the relationship between a stigmatized suburb and the inhabitants who fought to reshape it and call it home."--BOOK JACKET.
