The Broadford connection

Around the year 1900 James Joyce became very friendly with the Sheehy family in Dublin whilst attending parties at their house in Belvedere Place. The Sheehy family were originally from here in Broadford village. The family were later mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses and Stephen Hero. A world far removed from life here in Broadford at that time.

A storyboard in Broadford village gives you an insight into the Sheehy Family.
