Celebrating Bloomsday with Dublin Club

bloomsday 17.1A great time was had by the 8 members who travelled to Dublin Friday 16 June to celebrate Bloomsday with the Rotary Club of Dublin enjoying good company, good food and wine, great sunny hot weather and spectacular costumes worn by Dublin Club members. The Bloomsday Celebration commemorates James Joyce and has been held internationally since 1954. Sandycove is the site of Joyce’s Tower (an old Martello Tower, one of the Napoleonic defences) and the Bloom in Bloomsday refers to the surname of a lady whom Joyce had invited to meet him during his 6 night stay.. She did not turn up so the period was called Bloomsday. (Picture left shows Dublin President Pamela O’Loughlin (2nd left) with the Mayor of Sandycove and other Dublin ladies at Joyce’s Tower)
