Reading Groups

Dedicated to the works of James Joyce, our reading groups bring together people who love Irish literature and its limitless potential for discussion, learning and self-discovery.

Finnegans Wake or The Boaters and Sifters of ALP

Inaugurated in March 2015, the group meets on the third Wednesday of every month.

We have finished with chapter one and are now on chapter two. At our next meeting we will start somewhere on the middle of page 36 with “So, if we review the Duke of Wellington’s Testimonial obelisk and begin with nonation, we should be on track.”
