Bloom in the Barn!



We’re delighted to show you some snaps of Dolphin Barn’s “Bloomsday” festival.  The event was organised by local actor Michael Judd, who in conjunction with the “Back of the Pipes” Residents’ Association and DCC put on an all things Bloom event.


Over 100 local people dressed in boaters, fabulous hats and attire of turn of twentieth century Dublin attire to celebrate the Joycian world renowned classic and they had the weather too!


While some were “Bloomsday Virgins” (perhaps they were just being modest), there was plenty there who were well versed in the day of a life tome.


Readings from the book were done in authentic Dublin accents (after all Dolphin’s Barn is mentioned many times in “Bloomsday”) and songs, as well as delicious cakes, croissants, sausage rolls and drinks (gratefully no gizzard or kidney!).


Well done to all involved and the sponsors Spar, SuperValu, Tesco and DCC.


Thanks to Frank O’Shaugnessy for the snaps and Sandy Hazel for the account of the days events.
