Video column The Ghost – remembering Patrick Kavanagh
The final episode of The Dubliners series features the poet singing “If Ever You Go To Dublin Town” in a recording made in 1963.

PATRICK KAVANAGH WAS a native of Monaghan but spent much of his adult life living in a house on Dublin’s Waterloo Road.

This week’s Dubliners features Kavanagh singing “If Ever You Go To Dublin Town”, from a recording made in 1963, four years before the death of the poet. Kavanagh’s words are tinged with irony and poignancy as he considers his own reputation and legacy.
