Reading Ulysses

This year is the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday.

On a factual level, it was the day Joyce had his first rendez-vous with Nora Barnacle. RTÉ is marking this anniversary with a number of special programmes dedicated to Joyce and his work, central to which is
Reading Ulysses, a 19-part series broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1.
