Reading Ulysses with Seamus Cannon

You may have heard of the Reading Ulysses course that we have successfully run in Blackrock Education Centre before.  Well, we are delighted to announce that Dr Seamus Cannon has offered to guide us in the long-life adventure that is to discover what has been described by many critics as ‘one of the greatest novels ever written’ (if not the greatest!!!)

OK, you have missed the first session that serves as introduction to Homer’s Odyssey and James Joyce and his family  -  But there are still six monthly sessions: Tuesdays 14th January, 11th February, 24th March, 21st April, 12th May and 9th June 2020.  Plus some walks to be organised during the course and weather permitting.  And there are still places left!  For bookings please click here.
