Bloomsday 2012 Dawns Atop the Martello Tower

SANDYCOVE, IRELAND — Nearly 50 fans of James Joyce’s Ulysses crowded around the gunrest atop the Martello Tower here this morning shortly after 8 am for the first Ulysses reading of the day, beginning with “STATELY PLUMP Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather …” The voices circled round and round the Tower under low clouds and spritz of rain until the opening chapter was exhausted.
