Three Castles Burning Live – Bram and Beyond: The Irish Supernatural

Graduate Memorial Building

Venue: Graduate Memorial Building, Trinity College, Dublin 2

Saturday 28 October at 1pm

Tickets: €13 (includes + €1 booking fee)

Bram Stoker is undoubtedly the most celebrated Irish author of the supernatural, but the story of this literature in an Irish context does not begin or end with him. 

In this special live edition of the Three Castles Burning podcast, historian Donal Fallon is joined by author and publisher Brian J. Showers of Swan River Press and the actor Kathy Rose O’Brien.

They’ll delve into the works of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (of course), Katharine Tynan and Dorothy Macardle, among others, and explore their links to Stoker and the Dublin of his time.

This event takes place at the Graduate Memorial Building in Trinity College, home to the College Historical Society (The Hist) of which Stoker was auditor of in his day. The Hist was recently recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest student society in the world. 

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit one of Dublin’s most storied venues. 

This event is presented in partnership with the College Historical Society at Trinity College Dublin.
