Bloomsday Scruffy Murphys

For those not familiar with the now internationally celebrated event – Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce, during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16 June 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and now in many cities around the world. Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; it is set around their walk to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend.

The name is derived from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses. The day involves a range of cultural activities, including Ulysses readings and dramatisations, pub crawls and other related events.

Enthusiasts often dress in Edwardian costume to celebrate Bloomsday, and retrace Bloom’s route around Dublin via landmarks such as Davy Byrne’s pub. Hard-core devotees have even been known to hold marathon readings of the entire novel, some lasting up to 36 hours !

This is a family friendly event and is great way to meet with members & friends of St. Patrick’s and to experience the famed Irish culture, music, food and drink.
