Just had to give you the photos of Boomsday celebrations.
I went to the James Joyce centre in North Great Georges St.
People all dressed up in period costumes.
They have a website www.jamesjoyce.ie

Perhaps next year?

What do you think of the Argentine sailing ship?
Did you know that an Irishman founded their navy?
Not a lot of people know that.

  3. Oh so you read Joyce, you wag!
    Nora barnacle asked James "Why don't you write books that people can read?"
    That says it all.
    I nearly photographed myself when I snapped the 2 ladies sitting down.
    Will you all manage while I go away?
