Re: Re: Dublin, Royalty, identity etc.
One of the topics Pat Kenny listed for this morning is a discussion on ‘The Anglo-Irish and their identity crisis’.
Assuming this is not going to be about that wretched bank, it might be worth a listen.
The discussion is to be with Robert O’Byrne.
OK, we’re not getting too excited, but at least it may touch on the subject of architecture . . . . however lightly.
We always think of the Anglo-Irish as plummy toned and over-privileged, but that was [is] just the country house brigade, the real Anglo-Irish, the guys with day jobs, these are the people that made urban Ireland, and gave us the cultural heritage that we’re not slow to trade on when we’re looking for ‘City of Literature’ status etc. etc.
