Happy Bloomsday!

The first chapter of "Ulysses" takes places at Martello Tower. Joyce spent six nights there in 1904, leaving after Oliver St. John Gogarty fired a gun at him. The opening scenes of "Ulysses" are set the morning after this incident.

The James Joyce Museum at Sandycove, Dublin in the Martello Tower.
