    The guy between David Norris and Claire Byrne is John Fitzsimons from St Andrew’s Resource Centre. Sound man. I don’t know the lady.

      He’d certainly have tried to sue somebody over it. Joyce was notorious for instigating spurious court actions, even when he was young and hadn’t a penny to his name.

        – do you have any evidence? He pokes fun in Ulysses at a character attempting to instigate a spurious court action. The Joyce estate were notoriously litigious until the copywrite expired a few years ago. I believe Joyce would have revelled in his genius being recognised and celebrated.

          There’s tons of examples in the Ellmann biography. Even when he was a young man in Trieste, he tried sueing a guy over a pair of trousers – for slander, I think – it was something to do with Joyce getting fired from an amateur production of an Ibsen play. Later on, Joyce tried to get some kind of trademark on “Irish tweed” – more lawsuits about that. Several failed lawsuits over the non-publication of Dubliners. Multiple subsequent lawsuits over various pirated editions of Ulysses. Ellmann approaches the subject with a certain degree of puzzlement – despite being broke for many of years of his life, Joyce would instigate a costly and often fruitless lawsuit at the drop of a hat. I guess the Denis Breen character (UP:UP), is to some extent pointing fun at himself.
