A Pint In Barrytown: Pubs In The Work Of Roddy Doyle, Part 1
Author of The Commitments, The Snapper, The Van, and many more award winning books, Roddy Doyle captures the voice of working class Dublin like no other. So many of his works include depictions of the Dublin pub that we decided to put together a comprehensive guide to pubs in the work of Roddy Doyle. From the local Barrytown pub, The Hikers Rest, to the city centre pub that Jimmy and Bimbo declare to have the best pint in Dublin. The pubs, the conversations and the Irish drinking philosophy.
This is part one and features The Barrytown books and films, capturing all the pints drank by Jimmy junior, his dad Jimmy senior and his sister Sharon.
