Kennelly's 1999 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.

"Dear Ms. Kennelly -
"What might be the name of this erigible or erected residence? Bloom Cottage. Saint Leopold's. Flowerville. Could Bloom of 7 Ecclestreet forsee Bloom of Flowerville?"
Happy Bloomday! T.K."
