These pages examine and reveal the intimate connections between Irish authors and the landscape in which they live and write.  From Joyce’s Dublin to Yeats’s Sligo countryside, Synge’s Aran Islands to the Blasket Island Storytellers, Ireland and its authors share a powerful and passionate connection.  Through the combination of images and text, these web readings illuminate the ways in which Irish authors are embedded in the land of their birth.
