In Nausicaa, which takes place on the Dublin Bay shore in Sandymount, mention is made of a man who lives near the Green about a quarter of a mile inland: "And Gerty, rapt in thought, scarce saw or heard her companions or the twins at their boyish gambols or the gentleman off Sandymount green that Cissy Caffrey called the man that was so like himself passing along the strand taking a short walk."
