Frank Curran, Chief Executive, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council added:
We are delighted to support the Tower’s next steps and working closely with the Friends of Joyce Tower and look forward to continuing the warm welcome to this iconic and world-famous location.
Frank Cogan, Chair of Joyce Tower Museum CLG, paid tribute to the work of the Tower Volunteers and previous curators, Vivien Igoe and Robert Nicholson, for ensuring that the Tower remained open to visitors over recent decades. He went on to say; “the new partnership with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has put the management of the Tower on a new, dynamic footing, Ulysses has come back to his omphalos, his home by the wine-dark sea”.
The James Joyce Tower and Museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday each week, with normal hours of 10am-4pm each day.
