Dublin A Writer’s City – Rathmines

Although it might not seem obvious, Rathmines has as good a claim to be the cradle of the Irish Literary Revival of the early twentieth century as almost anywhere else on the island. Rathmines and its surrounding areas was, at various points, home to Yeats, Pearse, and the great organiser and facilitator, George Russell (Æ); it was here that James Joyce was born, and later the surrounding areas would be home to writers as important and as various as Eavan Boland, Maeve Brennan and Pearse Hutchinson. This talk will look at the ways in which, not far from the Rathmines Library, there lies a world rich in literary heritage, hiding in plain sight.
