National Heritage Week events August, 2018


100_5154Throughout Ireland, European Heritage Days are celebrated with a full week of events during National Heritage Week.

At the James Joyce Tower and Museum, we are always delighted to support National Heritage Week.

In 2018, we are delighted to, once again, welcome Paul O’Hanrahan to the tower to perform his re-enactment of the Telemachus (opening) chapter of ‘Ulysses’. Paul will deliver two performances; one on Saturday, 18th August and another on Wednesday, 22nd August.

I know that, whatever the day and whatever the weather, it is a terrific opportunity to enjoy Paul’s brilliant acting as he brings the opening of Joyce’s masterpiece to life in its original setting.
