Irish Times

In Lestrygonians Bloom walks by the offices of the "Irish Times" at 31 Westmoreland Street, heading south. The Times, a daily newspaper, has lasted from 1859 to the present day. In 1904 it was one of three Dublin newspapers that enjoyed a large national circulation, along with the Freeman's Journal and the Evening Telegraph, and it espoused modestly conservative, unionist politics. Bloom considers it the "Best paper by long chalks for a small ad. Got the provinces now." Among other occasions when he may have put this conviction into practice, the Times has published the ad that put "Henry Flower" in touch with "Martha Clifford."
