One of the unique connections between Hungary and Ireland is James Joyce’s novel, Ulysses, as the father of Leopold Bloom, the hero of Joyce's famous book was born in Szombathely, Hungary. This special bond makes a wonderful occasion for us to celebrate Bloomsday together each year. The play of the Hungarian Irish Theatre "All inclusive Bloomsday break" drew on the Hungarian connections both in Ulysses and with Joyce himself. It brought these connections to life through the modern day Hungarian/Irish relationship of a Hungarian girl and an Irish young man. This relationship parallels that of Leopold Bloom and Molly, James Joyce and Nora Barnacle and examines the cultural differences and the challenges a relationship like this faces and whether they can be overcome.
