Kath L I mention that the book is about the background to the pub, the poet and the pint. And if you would like a signed copy. That's it. I didnt try to 'flog' you anything. Nor did my 'partner in crime' - as you put it. My goodness, what reductive language you use. Colm

This was a wonderfully fun *and* educational tour! And entirely unique to Dublin. The actors really brought the writings to life. It was exciting to visit the haunts of James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, among others. I highly recommend, especially for anyone with a literary bent.
