16th of June is a special day which Dubliners celebrate each year as it marks ‘Thursday 16 June 1904’, the day depicted in James Joyce’s novel “Ulysses”. 16 June is Bloomsday in Dublin, after Joyce’s Leopold Bloom and it is one of the most famous days in world literature.

It was good to walk the streets of Dublin at the first day of June 2016, when the city was already preparing for some week-long activities to mark Bloomsday yet once again. Hopefully, you will feel bits of the energy through this small collection of photos. See some more at – http://www.thiscityknows.com/love-loves-to-love-dublin/
