German Traces in Ireland

There are many places to be found in Ireland with connections to German people and stories; from Handel’s Messiah at Fishamble Street in Dublin to the children of Operation Shamrock in Co.Wicklow, from the Ballinderry Sword to Ardnacrusha’s hydroelectric power station. Artists, writers and historical figures such as Agnes Bernelle, Imogen Stuart, Heinrich Böll and Friedrich Engels also feature with details of their Irish-German links.
