"Hidden by No. 99, a derelict seed and gun powder store, half under-ground Chapter House of St. Mary's Abbey with its groined vaulting," T. E. Kennelly's 1991 Bloomsday Card, was produced in a limited edition of 23 postal cards in celebration of Bloomsday, June 16, the day of Leopold Bloom's odyssey through Dublin in James Joyce's Ulysses.


"Yes sir, Ned Lambert said heartily. We are standing in the historic council chambers of Saint Mary's Abbey where silken Thomas proclaimed himself a rebel in 1534. This is the most historic spot in all Dublin."
