It's almost that time of the year again: Bloomsday is on Wednesday 16th June. Bloomsday is of course the 'anniversary' of the events told in James Joyce's Ulysses. The James Joyce Centre organises a wide range of events each year to celebrate Bloomsday; this year they begin today (Saturday 12th) and run to the 16th.
Details here. I can't overstate how much I approve of the concept of turning a full Irish breakfast into a cultural event. Genius!
