Dublin: 12 °C Saturday 30 May, 2020

The Snapper has finally been commemorated with a good-sized plaque in Dublin

Proper order.

IF EVER ANYTHING deserved a commemorative plaque, it’s surely The Snapper.

After all, the eminently quotable Roddy Doyle novel-turned-film is one of the most beloved stories in Ireland.

The plaque was unveiled as part of the Dublin: One City, One Book initiative.

Roddy Doyle’s Barrytown Trilogy is the book choice for April 2015 and there are a number of events taking place in Dublin to coincide with the selection, including a Barrytown-themed literary pub crawl.
