In the Footfall of ‘Ulysses’: Dublin Plaques

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

DUBLIN, IRELAND — Here are 5 of the bronze plaques placed in the sidewalks of the Hibernian Metropolis to mark spots mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses where Leopold Bloom fictively trod. These were encountered during my perambulations around the city this past week, culminating in Bloomsday. Nice that these memories of Ulysses are viewable year round, any time of day or night, in all types of weather … if you but remember to cast your eyes down now and again. — Steve Cole, Baltimore, Md.
