A computer buff has solved the James Joyce riddle that has puzzled Joyceans for years – how to cross Dublin without passing a pub.
Leopold Bloom first posed the question in the Joyce classic Ulysses but now, almost a century later, the puzzle has been solved by Rory McCann.
The Irish Independent reports that he finally solved the riddle online but only after a number of unsuccessful attempts.
Computer whizz McCann revealed: “It was something I’d been aware of and because I’m a computer programmer and heavily involved in Open Street Map I thought I’d have a stab at it.”
