Three Castles Burning

Donal Fallon’s Three Castles Burning podcast is dedicated to the lesser-known dimensions of Dublin’s past.

In this special edition for Bram Stoker Festival, he explores Stoker’s Dublin, and wonders if any of these places did influence Stoker, separating facts from mythology. Our journey takes us from Trinity College to St. Michan’s Church and beyond. Guest Frankie Gaffney, writer, linguist and author of Dublin Seven, sets the book in its cultural context.
