ENTRANCE TO ST. STEPHENS GREEN, OPPOSITE NEWMAN HOUSE
The entrance to the park is the one which Newman must have frequently used. It is known to the Loreto nuns, who have a house just a few doors away from Newman House, as “Newman’s Way”. It was in the park that Newman met his former friend and mentor of Oxford days, Richard Whately, Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin, out walking his dogs, who in refusing to recognise Newman caused him great hurt and pain. The park is very popular with the people of Dublin and in the summer months is a venue for concerts and other events.
