Fictional Ulster: A map of places created by writers

    Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


    Ballybeg, the fictitious setting for Brian Friel’s plays, is more famous than most real villages in Ulster. Despite not existing, the village has a kind of cultural and geographic life. This is part of what this map is about. It locates and charts Ulster’s fictional places — places invented by writers down through the years. These places have meaning too, they are part of how Ulster pictures itself and how others picture Ulster.
