Bloomsday in Blackrock Park
After the success of the “Dorothy Picnic” at her graveside on June 3rd, The Dorothy Macardle society has organised another event.There will be a reading from James Joyce on Bloomsday Friday 16th June and a breakfast picnic at the community garden seat in Blackrock Park from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon. If lots of people come we will move out to the seats in the park. Bring you own book and read a favourite passage, take a fold-up chair, an umbrella and your picnic. You are not confined to reading from Ulysses and you don’t have to stick rigidly….you will be relieved to hear…. to Leopolds breakfast of “thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liver slices fried in breadcrumbs or fried henscod roe”. If you have a song from the period, sung by James Joyce, photocopy the words by ten and we can sing a song at 2pm as well and if you play an instrument you can carry with you, please bring that too (you KNOW who I am hinting at!!). Lots of love and see you at this wonderful garden on 16th.
