Edwardian costumes were dusted off and donned with pride in Dublin as James Joyce fans take to the streets to celebrate Bloomsday.
Hundreds of people will take part in readings and reenactments during the annual James Joyce festival.
Bloomsday commemorates 16th June 1904, the day that Leopold Bloom, the principal character in "Ulysses, " and Nora Barnacle took a stroll to Ringsend in Dublin, and the day on which most of the book is based.
As is now the norm, Joyce fans re-enacted the walk and visited many locations in Dublin that figured in the author's life, such as the tower in which he lived, albeit for a very very brief time, at Sandycove.
