    'The Dead' is regarded by many as the greatest short story of the twentieth century. The closing story of 'Dubliners', it begins with a party in Ushers Island on January 6th, the feast of the Epiphany and the last night of Christmas. To mark the centenary of the publication of Dubliners, UCD Humanities Institute is delighted to announce the release of an exciting new iPad app - including the full story read by renowned actor Barry McGovern plus period images and audio commentaries.

    At number 15 Ushers Island, on the 6th of January, Kate and Julia Morkan hold their annual dinner party. Gabriel Conroy and his wife enjoy the company, dancing and music. When his wife hears the folksong, ‘The Lass of Aughrim’ sung plaintively by another guest, she remembers the young man who once loved her and sang to her on another snowy night. And Gabriel discovers his marriage and his life are not all he imagined them to be.
