Flann O’Brien is one of Irelands great writers, but he is hardly known outside Dublin. Well why not try and catch up with a great Flann O’Brien novel like At Swim Two Birds or The Third Policeman while having a great Dublin whiskey like Palace Bar 12 at The Palace Bar on Fleet St. Flann himself sat in this very bar writing some of his articles for the Irish Times newspaper and some of his great works were inspired by characters he probably saw here every night.
In the video below we see Flann O’Brien, Patrick Kavanagh and friends set off on the historic first Bloomsday. When things go wrong and will not come right, Though you do the best you can, When life looks black as the hour of night – A PINT OF PLAIN IS YOUR ONLY MAN.
