Hosted by the Darling Downs Irish Club, Bloomsday is celebrated all around the world, honouring author James Joyce and his famous book “Ulysses”. The day is named after the book’s hero, Leopold Bloom.
The gathering will begin at noon on Sunday 16th June 2019 at the James Joyce seat in Federation Park, near the Railway Station off Railway Street Toowoomba. The events in ‘Ulysses’ occur on 16th June 1904. Joyce chose that particular day because it was the date of his first romantic assignation with Miss Nora Barnacle, the woman who became his lover, muse and wife.
After listening to a short reading from Ulysses, you are then invited to purchase lunch at the Irish Club Hotel in Russell Street, where further discussions of Joyce's work will take place. Feel free to attire yourself a la Dublin 1904.
