If ever you go to Dublin town
In a hundred years or so
Inquire for me in Baggot Street
And what I was like to know.
('If Ever You Go to Dublin Town' by Patrick Kavanagh )
The Dublin: One City One Book title for 2014 is something completely different yet very Dublin. Dublin City Public Libraries and Dublin: UNESCO City of Literature have announced that 'If Ever You Go: a map of Dublin in poetry and song' will be the One City One Book choice for April 2014.
