Bram Stoker (1847–1912), famous as the author of 'Dracula', was born in Dublin. He was Sir Henry Irving’s secretary and touring manager for 27 years. A Protestant and a Liberal, Stoker believed in Home Rule for Ireland but was also a monarchist, a believer in Empire and an admirer of Gladstone. The speaker will discuss in detail Stoker’s complex attitudes to Ireland.
