Enniscorthy is mentioned in the Ithaca chapter of James Joyce’s Ulysses as a flyleaf note in a book belonging to Leopold Bloom, where it is described as “Ennifcorthy, Co. Wicklow, the finest place in the world”.  But there is a reason why the quote hasn’t appeared on Irish Tourism posters…….he placed the town in the wrong county!! But being the big-hearted people we are, we wont hold a grudge.  The novel is prominently display in Byrne’s Bookshop on Court Street.
