Joyce and Clane on Kildare Walking Festival

There's a James Joyce theme in this evening’s featured event of the Kildare Walking Festival, writes Brian Byrne.

It’s in Clane, and on the hour-long event from 7.30pm, which takes them to Clongowes Wood College, participants will hear how the locality was portrayed in James Joyce's book 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man'.

The guide will be Padraig McEvoy, who can be contacted on 086 8658262. The event is free of charge, and starts from the car park of Manzor's pub..

Again, the full programme is available here.
