Dublin: One City, One Book

Dublin, Monday 1st April - Tuesday 30th April 2019

Dublin: One City, One Book is an award-winning Dublin City Council initiative, led by Dublin City Public Libraries, which encourages everyone to read a book connected with the capital city during the month of April every year.

The One City, One Book choice for 2019 is The Country Girls Trilogy by Edna O'Brien.
When The Country Girls, Edna O'Brien's first novel, appeared in 1960, it predated and anticipated the feminist revolution. It stood out and stood alone, upturning every category. There was little to compare with it.

The Country Girls grew over time to what we now know as The Country Girls Trilogy, encompassing the title volume, a second novel Girl with Green Eyes, published in 1962, and Girls in Their Married Bliss, published in 1964. It is given to few to write their most important works early on. Quite simply, The Country Girls is a twentieth-century literary masterpiece which anticipates and puts into effect a feminist revolution all of its own.

George Best in Dalymount: Football As Never Before

Dalymount Park

TU Dublin, Bohemian FC and Dublin Business School are delighted to present a rare opportunity to see George Best finally play Dalymount Park in a competitive fixture (Best lined out on the Phibsboro park in a benefit match in August 1968). This is a unique opportunity to see the islands greatest ever player return to the home of Irish football. Best was famously too big to play Dalymount - in 1968 when the then European Champions, Manchester United arrived to play League of Ireland champions Waterford, the fixture was moved to Lansdowne Road to accommodate a larger crowd. In a rare screenin
