In Hades Bloom remembers Molly growing "big" with
their son and having to "refuse the Greystones concert."
Greystones is a fishing village in County Wicklow named for a
stretch of coast between its two beaches. It lies 15-20 miles
down the coast from Dublin, just south of Bray Head.
In the Victorian era the town became a fashionable seaside
Dubliners began looking to Bray and Greystones as vacation
destinations and even as residential addresses starting in the
1850s, when newly laid train tracks facilitated travel to and
from the city. Today these attractive communities lie on the
two southernmost stops of the DART line. Live music is an
ongoing tradition in Greystones.
