One thought on “2023 Dublin Literary Award Shortlist

  1. Mm and tho not quite relevant, the next Annual Irish National SF Con (Octocon: going now since 1990) is due Fri 6-Sun 8 October (inclusive) : Gibson Hotel -Dublin Docklands (*). With my own hosted, traditional, post-Octocon Dead Dogs the next day (Mon 9 Oct) from 1300hrs: The Porterhouse, Parliament St, Dublin 2. Hot food/craft ales, thereat. [ * The Gibson, used for some events at Dublin Worldcon 2019, is at the very eastern end of the LUAS (Dublin tram –RED– line: Tram stop: The Point) whilst the Mon Dead Dogs is on the same LUAS Red Line a few stops westward (Tram stop: Jervis and then cross the River Liffey). ] —–And if already going, from overseas, to the (now fully booked-up) Irish Discworld Con (IDWC) : Cork- 2 weeks later (Fri 20-Sun 22 Oct), one may wish to combine the 2 Cons (Octocon+IDWC) with a vacation, in between, in Ireland (eg visit Belfast (C S Lewis/Game of Thrones) or Galway or (on the way to Cork) Limerick (the Hunt Museum is recommended there).——BRING A MAC!!!——- [ Speedy trains (and cheaper but slower coaches) from Dublin to Galway, to Limerick and to Cork.. ] /// PS : I don’t work for Irish Tourism but I am Irish!! /// Best wishes…
