Part 2: From Bloom's House, through the Morning Streets, to a Funeral

7 Eccles Street, Dublin. The home of Leopold and Marion (Molly) Bloom. Bloom, we are told, 'eats with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls' and cooks himself a pork kidney for breakfast. While Molly receives a letter from her concert promoter Hugh 'Blazes' Boylan who has arranged to visit her later in the day. Bloom prepares to attend Paddy Dignam's funeral at Glasnevin cemetery. Dramatised by Robin Brooks.
