Bloomsday celebrations have taken place around Dublin today to mark the 101st anniversary of James Joyce's 'Ulysses'.

Walking tours departed from the James Joyce Centre in North Great George's Street throughout the day, visiting locations from Joyce's work, including Eccles Street, where Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of 'Ulysses', lived.

The Balloonatics Theatre Company performed extracts from 'Ulysses' in the places that Bloom visited on 16 June 1904.

The James Joyce Museum at Sandycove Tower, where 'Ulysses' opens, hosted readings of the book and visitors were invited to explore the tower where Joyce himself lived for a short time.

Muldoon's Picnic performed 'Joyce in Voice', music from 'Ulysses', at the James Joyce Centre.

The National Library exhibit 'James Joyce and Ulysses', which opened for the Bloomsday centenary celebrations last year, is also open and will continue until the autumn.
