Walks through James Joyce’s Dublin is a brand new series from Near FM and the James Joyce Centre that follows the mercurial world of James Joyce and his characters through Dublin’s fair city. In this audio series Dublin comes alive through the Joycean walking tours, led by tour guide Conor Linnie through the old streets and literary history that has left such an indelible mark on Joyce’s work. Joyce’s words themselves are vividly brought to life by noted Joycean actors Barry McGovern and Katie O’Kelly. Based on the 2016 book Written in my Heart, Walks through James Joyce’s Dublin by Emily Carson and Mark Traynor, this series explores how Dublin locations played a role in Joyce’s life and influenced his work.
Walks through James Joyce’s Dublin is a Near FM production in partnership with the James Joyce Centre and will run as a three part series of broadcasts on May 7th, 14th, and 21st 2019.
