* James Joyce's novel Ulysses describes the events of a single day in Dublin: June 16, 1904. Joyce chose the date because his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle, happened on that day, when they walked to the Dublin urban village of Ringsend. Since 1954 Bloomsday – named after the novel's main character, Leopold Bloom – has been a Joycean feast day, observed annually. It celebrates the life of Irish writer, James Joyce, and relives the events in his novel.
