Happy Birthday, James Joyce

The guitar which James Joyce was pictured playing in 1919 has been on display at Joyce Tower in glass casing for 45 years but no real care was given to it over the years. Professor Fran O'Rourke at UCD has orchestrated the careful restoration of the instrument by renowned lutenist Gary Southwell of www.southwellguitars.co.uk at facilities provided by Collins Barracks. The refurbished guitar will be played at a series of lunchtime recitals at Newman House in Dublin during Bloomsweek.
