Virginia Woolf in Dublin - 6 May, 1934

from The diary of Virginia Woolf, page 215:

It is very windy, wet & cold, & I am sitting alone after lunch in the lounge with a grey black netting woman.  The scene is St Stephen's Green, an Irish attempt at Lincoln's Inn Fields, just as Merrion Square attempts Bedford Sqre & so on.  We lunch at the Sherburne [Shelburne Hotel]; & there are the film actors; here they are too.  Aran islanders, in thick tweeds, who sit over the fire downstairs singing what may be hymns.
