Ulysses, 1922.djvu


Tir na n-og     (Errata) This Irish expression should read: Tír na nÓg. When an earlier draft of this chapter was printed in The Little Review in April 1919, the reading was: Tir nan og.[1]

Tír na nÓg     (Irish) Land of the Young Folk.[2] In Irish mythology, Tír na nÓg is the Celtic Otherworld, an afterlife of perfect happiness where no one grows old.
