In ten of Dublin’s most historic buildings, we encounter the great periods of building activity, the people involved in their construction and the institutions that inhabited them. Behind the façades is the story of Dublin. Bringing together the story of these landmark buildings, Lisa takes us on a wonderful journey through the shifting social, political and cultural history of Ireland’s capital.

Are literary women writers undersold and undervalued by the current literary universe? In 2014 a small American literary journal vowed to cover women writers for a full year. Then, artist Joanna Walsh’s #readwomen2014 project became a popular meme on social media. Join three Hennessy award winning writers, Valerie Sirr, Geraldine Mills and Eileen Casey in this lively debate as they assess and attempt to redress male writers’ dominance in the literary world. The event is facilitated by local writer Sue Hassett
