Wow great info there Doonie. Is your username a coincidence? I'm afraid Jordo has gone from the site for quite some time so I doubt you can get a newer scan of the pic or the title of the newspaper.

Morning Lar,

A little bit of Sandycove in New Zealand??
Great picture. My friend has just moved to Sandycove and I am rediscovering the place. I had forgotten the gorgeous walks and the incredible light as it shines at different times on that very same spot. The friends were always fit ,but, now they are enjoying early morning jogs along Newtownsmithe, down the pier and around the little sandy cove. Heaven.
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

At last I went to see the James Joyce Tower at Sandycove....imagine I have lived five miles away from Sandycove all my life and I never was there before.

As part of the Council's Summer Tours there were guided tours listed for today so off we ent!!. We arrived at the Tower and had a most warm welcome...the place is manned by volunteers and such an enthusiastic, knowledgable gang. We were blown away by the calibre of artifacts on view. letters, photos, books, memorabilia. The tour with the history, anecdotes, snippets of history and humour was perfect. We were allowed view every bit of the tower and the rooftop is a "must see". Bit dodgy on the stairs for my old bones but I'd be better able the next time.
All this was completly FREE!!

I picked up the leaflet for the Bloomsday festival
Saturday 10th June Music at the Tower...Noel O'Grady sings songs from "Ulysses" at 2p.m

Sunday 11th June Theatre at the Tower Catriona Ní Thresaigh is Molly Bloom 2p.m and 4p.m.

Monday 12th June to Wednesday 14th June ...Tours in costume...the guides will be in costumes of the period.

Thursday 15th June Bloomsday Eve FJT Singalong...friends of Joyce ~Tower Society musicians from 4p.m.

Friday 16th June Bloomsday at the Tower...Tower opens at 08.00 hrs. Bryan Murray reads from "Ulysses" from 09.00 hrs Catriona Ní Threasaigh returns for occasional performances. FREE entry to all events.

Sounds like a not to be missed time....We will be back.
