In pictures: Bloomsday celebrations
Reading the novel

Throughout the day there were readings of selected passages of Ulysses by a distinguished group of guests at the James Joyce centre.

Readers and guests included the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, and many other prominent politicians, writers, actors and artists.

Crowds waited patiently outside for a chance to hear the readings.
