Tana French's Dublin

(her primary settings all seem to relocate real placenames to fictional sites)

In the Woods

There's lots of Irish places called 'Knocknaree' but this one is fictional, location (red paddle) implied by ""She had had a ballet class in Stillorgan, a few miles in towards the center of Dublin

Two local motorways opened in 2005

Poem: "At the British War Cemetery, Bayeux" by Charles Causley

The Likeness

Ryan's room is a stone's throw from the Tower (also Synge's pissed-on door)

Ryan and Maddox walk the famous Strand

their offices are in the Castle (like Martin Cunningham's)

Ballsbridge is where the cavalcade ends up

UCD has moved

Knocknaree would have been about an hour's walk from Deasy's school
