Bloomsday 2018 at Glasnevin Cemetery

Details for Bloomsday 2018 at Glasnevin Cemetery Announced

In honour of Bloomsday 2018, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum presents:

ReJOYCE: A reading of Hades performed by the 'Joycestagers', and a Joycean tour of Glasnevin Cemetery

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 Cemetery Museum will run a series of events including a Joycean themed breakfast & lunch in the Tower Café, a reading of Chapter Six - Hades performed by the 'Joycestagers', and a Joycean tour of the cemetery itself.

Bloomsday Running Order:

10.00 am -3.00 pm: Special Joycean Breakfast and Lunch in the Tower Café (please note that this is not included in the ticket price).

11.30 am: Re-enactment of the funeral procession of Paddy Dignam from Episode 6, 'Hades', of Ulysses.

12.15pm: A Joycean Tour of Glasnevin Cemetery. Glasnevin, the heart of the Hibernian necropolis, has many links to Joyce's life and writing.

This tour takes a walk through the life, time and imagination of James Joyce.
