To celebrate Brigid’s Day and the centenary of the publication of Ulysses, the Irish Embassy in Paris explores the network of women who made this momentous publication possible. Our protagonists are three Parisian women who were the driving force behind this incredibly challenging and risky endeavour: Nora Barnacle, Sylvia Beach and Adrienne Monnier. To understand who they were and the important contributions they made, Ambassador Niall Burgess spoke with three authors and Joyce experts, Nuala O’Connor, Catherine Flynn and Keri Walsh. This video brings you the highlights of those three conversations.
This St Brigid’s Day event is a programme brought to you by the Department of Foreign Affairs.
