German Traces in Ireland
Launched on 17 June 2014 by the German Ambassador to Ireland at the Goethe-Institut in Dublin, the app "German Traces in Ireland" is a wonderful tool to discover connections between Germany and Ireland. The Goethe-Institut Irland makes it possible to track the traces of historical figures and events.
There are many places to be found in Ireland with connections to German people and stories; from Handel’s Messiah at Fishamble Street in Dublin to the children of Operation Shamrock in Co.Wicklow, from the Ballinderry Sword to Ardnacrusha’s hydroelectric power station. Artists, writers and historical figures such as Agnes Bernelle, Imogen Stuart, Heinrich Böll and Friedrich Engels also feature with details of their Irish-German links.
