Sunday November 12, 2017 05:00 PM EST
Cost: FREE,

From the venue:

Sir William Wilde, Dublin's most eminent eye and ear doctor, was also a tireless antiquarian and archaeologist.  His house in Merrion Square in Dublin was the center of the city's intellectual life. He was also the subject of gossip and the cause of a court case and a scandal that strangely prefigures the case which caused the downfall of his son Oscar.
