About this event

Join in with a stroll through history on the Arthur Griffith Walking Tour, where you'll explore the life and legacy of this influential figure. By the time of his death on 12 August 1922, Arthur Griffith had packed much into his 51 years.

Printer, journalist, editor (the first to publish work by James Joyce), political thinker, Republican, founder of Sinn Féin, President of Dáil Éireann and signatory of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, he remains an enigmatic figure to this day.

Join John for a 90 minute stroll through Griffith's Dublin with stops at Henrietta Street, his birthplace at 61 Upper Dominick Street, his school in St Mary’s Place and his grave at Glasnevin cemetery, exploring along the way people and places in the North Inner City which helped shape one of our capital's most controversial sons.
