Shocked workers have little to re-Joyce about under Clerys' clock
It was precisely 101 years ago yesterday when Leopold Bloom conducted his famous perambulation around the capital.
And, as recorded in 'Ulysses', along his wandering walk on June 16, 1904 he passed an advertisement for a store which - like all celebrated characters - traded under a single name.
"Mr Bloom stood at the corner, his eyes wandering over the multi-coloured hoardings. Cantrell and Cochrane Ginger Ale (Aromatic). Clerys' Summer Sale," wrote James Joyce.
