Joyce County: Galway and James Joyce – Ray Burke.


PRESS RELEASE – 1st February 2022



Foreword by Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland.

Written in an accessible style for the general reader, this book contains considerable new information, such as the first detailed accounts of the suspicious grounding of a passenger ship in Galway Bay in 1858, an event which gripped Joyce’s Imagination and features in Ulysses. It also gives fresh insights into Nora Barnacle’s influences on Joyce’s writings and his relationship with his tragic only daughter, Lucia, ‘a granddaughter of Galway’.
