In the eighth episode of  our series of free Irish podcasts The Writer’s Passage we visit Dublin with author and historian Vincent Caprani.  Based on his book “A View From The Dart” Vincent takes us to 3 location along The Dublin Area Rapid Transport rail system. As well as reading from his book, Vincents shares some of the homes of great Irish writers who could never have guessed what a great asset to public transport in Dublin The Dart would be and how it’s inhabitants and visitors alike would come to depend on it.
