And Another for no Better Reason

Throughout the central blocks of Dublin, from North of the Liffey near the old Irish Post office to as far south and west as the National Library/National Museum, there are scattered 16 plaques that honor events, moments, words, of Ulysses.  For reasons I cannot fully explain, this is one of my favorites--at the Junction where O'Connell Street becomes Westmoreland, across the street from the building that is still called the Ballast House.



And then:






Just so you know that Ireland loves her artists--the building, built on the same spot, obviously not the original.  (It says Foundation stone laid on 10th April 1981, A stone from the original Ballast house is below the foundation stone at top, and a stone from the Royal Liver Building (Liverpool) is at the bottom.):
