Bus Eireann Tour of d’Northside

Join us for a bus tour of the North Inner city area where Roddy Doyle’s ‘Barrytown Trilogy’ was set. An actor will read excerpts from the books and Pia Dunne will sing soul songs from The Commitments. This is part of the “One City One Book” week.

The ‘Barrytown Trilogy’ consists of the first three novels by Irish writer Roddy Doyle and was first published as a trilogy in 1992. All of the three novels have been adapted into successful movies. The three novels are: The Commitments , The Snapper and The Van. All three novels are focused on the Rabbitte family.
