Highly entertaining

Great interviews by Martina Devlin, for anyone who values books and writing. She gives us an insight into how Robert Ballagh's mind works, takes us on a tour of the Joyce Tower in Sandycove and whets our appitite for Mary Costello's latest novel about a Joycean fan - all in the course of 60 minutes...
