Bloomsday at Glasnevin Museum 16th June 2012
It is not unusual to see dedicated Joyceans make the annual trip to Glasnevin Cemetery in hired horse-drawn carriages; some even rent a hearse for full authenticity. Amongst the countless Joycean characters buried in Glasnevin is the writer’s father John Stanislaus. This year to celebrate this historic date Glasnevin Museum will run a series of events Including a Joycean breakfast in the Tower cafe, a reading of Chapter six Hades by the Dublin Shakespeare Society and a Joycean tour of the cemetery with Shane MacThomais.
