Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown: Bloomsday – Call for Readers

Bloomsday – Call for Readers


Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown writer-in-residence, Chris Binchy, is organising a filmed relay reading of Ulysses this Bloomsday, June 16th.  While the novel remained in copyright, public performances of Ulysses were significantly restricted, so this is the first year that it can be approached with  freedom.Ulysses is deeply rooted in the character and voices of Dublin, and this is a fitting and personal way for people to engage with Joyce’s work level in the place where the book begins.

Filming will move location on the day from Sandycove to Dalkey to Dún Laoghaire. Members of the public will be filmed reading short allocated sections from the novel, and these will be immediately uploaded to a website, building into a unique document of the day. If you’d like to take part in this event, please contact Chris at DLRWriter@gmail.com.Image
