DUBLIN -- One hundred years ago today is the day described in arguably the greatest novel of the 20th century, James Joyce's "Ulysses." June 16, 1904, was when Joyce's hero, Leopold Bloom, set out on a meandering stroll through Dublin, and the date is now celebrated worldwide as Bloomsday.

Dublin's main thoroughfare, O'Connell Street, is closed and turned into an outdoor eaterie for the Bloomsday Centenary breakfast, June 13.

ReJoyce!!!
