The unveiling of a plaque and a special postage stamp to honour Dame Iris Murdoch by Dublin City Council and An Post marking the birthday of the late author and philosopher close to her birth place.

Born at 59 Blessington Street, Iris moved with her parents to London while still an infant, but the family often holidayed by the sea in Dun Laoghaire and Ireland features prominently in a number of her works.
