    Glasnevin Cemetery has been celebrating Bloomsday since 2010 and it’s now a firm favourite for Bloomsday pilgrims. On 16 June 1904, Glasnevin was the venue for the funeral of the fictional Paddy Dignam, attended by Joyce’s protagonist Leopold Bloom in Ulysses. This year to celebrate this historic date, Experience Glasnevin will run a series of events including a Joycean exhibition, a new Ulysses guide, a re-enactment of the ‘Hades’ episode of Ulysses performed by the Joycestagers, and a Joycean tour of the cemetery itself.
