Bloomsday All Over

Pictured in costume outside Dublin's James Joyce Centre for the Bloomsday Festival are (l to r) Local "Joycean" Raphael Kelly from Dublin; Bloomsday Festival Co-Ordinator Sam Ford; Director of the James Joyce Centre Darina Gallagher, and actor/musician Sinead Murphy. Bloomsday is being celebrated not only in Ireland but all over the world including the United States where Ireland's embassies and consulates are partnering with hundreds of local organizations to distribute more than 5,000 copies of Joyce's works in over 100 cities and 18 languages on what is being dubbed Bloomsday All Across America.
