“The Heaventree of Stars” is an annual Bloomsday celebration of astronomy, maths, and science in Ulysses and other works of James Joyce. This beautiful summer evening of readings, discussions, and music will be held in the Meridian Room of Dunsink Observatory. This is a special year for the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the School of Cosmic Physics and our operation of Dunsink. 

The event will include a self-guided tour of the Observatory. “The clock is worked by an electric wire from Dunsink. Must go out there …”
