Happy Bloomsday

What a fun Bloomsday this is turning out to be. I am spending the evening in the studios of WBAI performing Ulysses live on air. There’s nothing like the rush of a live performance to exercise your acting chops.

Hope you’re all having a Joyce-filled Bloomsday.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

  5. I had some devilled kidneys in Fitzgerald’s of Sandycove on Bloomsday, they do a great show out there. Joyce used to sup there when he stayed in the Martello Tower with his friends. It wasn’t Fitzgerald’s then, it was just a tiny country pub. Sandycove would have been considered to be out in the country to Dubliners at that time.

      I haven’t been to Sandycove in ages, pretty great place to celebrate Bloomsday. Next time I’m back in Ireland I’m definitely revisiting Joyce’s haunts. I might give the devilled kidneys a miss though! 🙂

    I wanted to create and post a photograph of stately plump Buck Mulligan coming from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. But by the time I’d found a mirror let alone a bowl of lather and a straight razor and a plausible Buck Mulligan —
    Bloomsday was over.
    Glad you were there filling in the gaps.
