Local History

birthplace of francis baconThe birthplace of Francis Bacon (painter) sits directly across the street at 62 Lower Baggot Street. Francis Bacon was born at 62 Lower Baggot Street, the son of an Irish born mother and an Australian-born English father.Captain Anthony Edward Mortimer ("Eddy") Bacon, his father, was a veteran of the Boer War who became a racehorse trainer. Christina Winifred "Winnie" Firth, his mother, was an heiress to a Sheffield steel business and coal mine.Function of Lord Mayor of DublinThe office is largely symbolic and its responsibilities consist of chairing meetings of the City Council and representing the city at public events. Apart from a few reserved functions, which are exercised by the City Council as a whole, executive power is exercised by the City Manager, a Council official appointed by the Public Appointments Service formerly by the Local Appointments Commission. Except on a handful of occasions where the city government has been suspended for not striking a rate a level of local tax, Dublin has had a mayor for nearly eight hundred years.The Lord Mayor resides in the eighteenth century Mansion House on Dawson Street. A privilege enjoyed by the Lord Mayor is to receive the first car registered in Dublin at the beginning of each new year, i.e. in 2010 the Mayor's car registration was "10–D–1".
