Joyceans in Full Bloom at Glasnevin CemeteryDublin 16th June 2016: The annual Bloomsday event at Glasnevin Cemetery took place this morning celebrating the life of Irish writer James Joyce. The event was marked by a costumed performance by the ‘Joyceanstagers’ of chapter six, “Hades”, from Ulysses, which is set in Glasnevin Cemetery, followed by a special Joycean themed tour of the Cemetery. Bloomsday enthusiasts arrived to Glasnevin Cemetery in hired carriages and full costume. Glasnevin Cemetery holds a special place for Joyce devotees, as chapter six, “Hades”, from Ulysses is set in the grounds of the Cemetery. In the ‘Hades’ chapter, Leopold Bloom accompanies Simon, Stephen' father to Paddy Dignam's funeral and decides from then on to reject morbid thoughts and to embrace 'warm full-blooded life'. A fully costumed performance of this chapter was performed by the ‘Joycestagers’ who embraced the day and brought the world of Ulysses to life for those who attended.  Pictured were Brazilian student living in Dublin to learn english at Dorset College,  Larissa Buran, Phibsboro, Barbara Novelli G
