It is not unusual to see dedicated Joyceans make the annual trip to Glasnevin Cemetery in hired horse-drawn carriages; some even rent a hearse for full authenticity.
Amongst the countless Joycean characters buried in Glasnevin is the writer’s father John Stanislaus. This year to celebrate this historic date Glasnevin Cemetery Museum will run a series of events Including a Joycean themed breakfast & lunch in the Tower Café, a reading of Chapter Six Hades by the Dublin Shakespeare Society, and a Joycean tour of the cemetery with Shane MacThomáis.
