Irish House Ready for Bloomsday
To most, today, June 16, might just be another Tuesday. But for James Joyce fans around the world, June 16 marks the ever-important literary celebration, Bloomsday.

Writers and literary enthusiasts from across the city will come out to narrate excerpts of the famously dense, Ulysess.
