In Follow Me Down to Dublin, Deirdre Purcell takes to the streets of Dublin to meet those who inhabit her city and who, like her, love it.
Deirdre Purcell was born and brought up in Dublin, and educated there and in a County Mayo convent. Before turning to the writing of fiction, she lived through an eclectic set of careers, including acting, as a member of the permanent company of Ireland's National Theatre (The Abbey), and journalism for all media - for which she won Ireland's top awards.
