Mary Lavin Place
at Wilton Park
Mary Lavin was a writer who lived and worked on Lad Lane. Recognising her contribution, IPUT is delighted to name the new public square at Wilton Park as Mary Lavin Place, making it the first public space in Ireland to be named in honour of a female writer.
We commissioned Mary’s granddaughter, Kathleen MacMahon to write an essay about her grandmother.
