The Irish Historic Towns Atlas (IHTA) is producing a Dublin suburbs series of atlases in collaboration with Dublin City Council. The first five suburbs to be completed in this scheme will be Clontarf by Colm Lennon, Rathmines by Seamus Ó Maitiú, Drumcondra by Ruth McManus, Inchicore/Kilmainham by Frank Cullen and Ringsend/Sandymount by Jacinta Prunty.

This series will be published in a new format but will complement the atlas series, enabling them to be compared to other towns atlases already published. There are numerous historic and modern maps, illustrations and photographs as well as an accompanying essay and individual histories of topographic sites in Clontarf from earliest times up to c. 1970.
