Chiefly noted as the venue of Yeats’s “Leda and the Swan”, and after that for Lennox Robinson’s contribution “The Madonna of Slieve Dun” in which a girl is raped by a tramp and comes to believe she is to give birth to the new Christ - a story which resulted in Robinson’s his dismissal from the post of Librarian to the Plunkett Foundation libraries.
