    on Monday's show....Roddy Doyle's 'Barrytown Trilogy' is this year's Dublin One City One Book and tonight Arena examines the use of language in the three novels; language which was - and some still is - outrageous, controversial and scandalous. How do we view such language now, more than 25 years after the books were first written?
