Dublin: One City One Book Event to reunite Billo, John and Eamo for unforgettable night #BarrytownTrilogy

Dublin City Council’s Public Libraries have just announced a special event which promises to relive the glory days of Ireland’s adventures at Italia ’90. ‘Remembering Italia ‘90’will see a reunion of RTE’s classic Italia ’90 line-up – Bill O’Herlihy, John Giles and Eamonn Dunphy .

The event takes place at the Aviva Stadium’s 1872 Room at 7pm on Thursday 16th April and promises to be a night to remember. There are limited tickets available for the event, at only €5 and are available now from www.entertainment.ie

‘Remembering Italia ’90’ is one of the highlights of this year’s Dublin: One City One Book festival which takes place at venues throughout the city during April. Roddy Doyle’s Barrytown Trilogy is this year’s Dublin: One City One Book choice. One of the books, The Van, follows Jimmy Rabbitte Senior and his pal Bimbo as they start a chip van business in an attempt to cash in on Ireland’s adventures at the 1990 World Cup.

Jane Alger of Dublin City Public Libraries organises the Dublin: One City One Book festival. She says “the 1990 World Cup was an unforgettable experience for so many people and provided inspiration for Roddy Doyle whose work we are celebrating this year. The audience will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relive those days with Bill, John & Eamonn, three broadcasters who are an indelible part of many people’s memories of those wonderful days.”
