Happy Bloomsday

Left: James Joyce Street renamed (for the second time). Now cleaned-up and almost anonymous, the narrow street was known as Mabbot Street in Joyce’s time. It led to the infamous Mecklenburgh Street, part of 'Night-town' in the Circe episode of Ulysses. Photograph by Megan O'Beirne.

Apropos of nothing, today is "Bloomsday," the 102nd anniversary of the fictional date on which Leopold Bloom's famous walk around Dublin took place in Ulysses.
