Beckett has us on edge of our seat
A memorial plaque honouring Nobel Prize winning writer Samuel Beckett was unveiled in Foxrock village in Co Dublin on Sunday.
A niece of the writer, Caroline Murphy, was present as the plaque was unveiled by Carrie Smyth, cathaoirleach of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Council Council.
Beckett, born in 1906, grew up in the South Dublin suburb. His family lived in a large house 'Cooldrinagh' on Kerrymount Avenue, until 1927.
The world-famous avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet lived in Paris for most of his adult life. But much of his work betrayed his deep roots in Dublin. Beckett won a Nobel Prize for Literature.
