I’ve left aside Tropic of Cancer for another day. I’m nursing a bit of a hangover after the New Years Eve festivities to tell the truth. Think I’ll take it easy today.

In case anyone wants to know more about Strumpet City and Bachelors Walk. Strumpet City is a novel written by James Plunkett. It is set in Dublin at the start of the 20th century. It centers around tenement life in Dublin and in particular deals with the 1913 Lockout inspired by Jim Larkin. It was adopted for tv in 1979 and shown again on the national station RTE1. Bachelors Walk is a comedy set in Dublin. It deals with three single men sharing a house along Dublin’s quayside. It ran for three seasons and was an incredible success. Hope that answers any questions.

Gotta go. Happy New Year everyone.
