Researching the birthplace of AE Russell today in Lurgan, County Armagh. Born in 1867 and moved to Dublin when he was eleven.
Visited the spot where his family home once stood close to the Brownlow Castle - the architecture of which is said to have been an inspiration for some of his writings. The nearby Model School with its lofty red brick tower which he attended is still in use today.
His main subject, however, was mysticism. Russell was one of the major writers in the Irish Literary Renaissance.
