Cycle an old messenger bike around the streets of Dublin dressed in Joycean attire.

9.30am: The Rally cycles around the streets of Dublin…up Grafton street, down Henry street etc… a route which brings us across both sides of the city and generates great excitement and photo opportunities in the city.

There are three pitstops along the way traditional bars where we have singsong, readings from Ulysses, chats and Guinness! We also stop at the mansion house where we sing Molly Malone with the Lord Mayor.

Then at 12.45pm we have a lunch in the Shelbourne Hotel. Our compere is Bryan Dobson and special celebrity guests.
