Today is Bloomsday, and we're not talking cherry blossoms. June 16 is the date when Leopold Bloom, hero of James Joyce's epic novel "Ulysses," made his odyssey through Dublin, Ireland. So what, you may say. Well, "Ulysses" is one of the most influential books of the 20th century. Funny, irreverent, full of barely comprehensible word play - and the original manuscript resides not in Dublin but in our own wonderful and underappreciated Rosenbach Museum at 2010 Delancey Place, repository of an amazing collection of rare books and art. Today from noon to 6, in front of the Rosenbach, a variety of Philadelphians, including Police Commissioner John Timoney, radio host Marty Moss-Coane and TV personality Ulysses "Ukee" Washington, will read from "Ulysses.

In Dublin's fair city, the girls are so . . . waifish. At least The Girl With Green Eyes is. This 1964 feature starring the delightful Rita Tushingham as a stray cat of a girl rescued by writer Peter Finch is a mood piece as memorable for their performances as for the Dublin locations. "The Girl With Green Eyes" will be with "Waltz of the Toreadors," a comedy starring Peter Sllers, tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Film Forum/Philadelphia, Philadelphia Center, 509 S. Broad St. (w) Tickets are $4; $3 for members and full-time students.

Inis Nua, dedicated to contemporary drama from Ireland, England, Scotland, and Wales, presents Mark O'Rowe's Made in China, a stunningly nasty play about Dublin's thugworld. The accents are thick (what did he say?), the slang is low (what does that mean?), and the violence is vicious: If the three actors - all giving terrific performances - live through the run, it will be thanks to their skill and courage and the brilliant fight choreography of J. Alex Cordaro. A thug named Hughie (Jered McLenigan, whose honeyed baritone serves him well here, creating a sense of humanity crucial to his character)

Cass Kimrey likes to tell about how her son went all the way to Ireland to meet the girl next door. Jim Kimrey, 35, a sergeant in the Philadelphia Police Department and a saxophonist in the Avalon String Band, is the prototypical South Philadelphian - carrying on in his father's footsteps as a police officer and a Mummer, living in his grade-school parish, and remodeling the home his paternal great-grandfather bought after emigrating from Lithuania....

NEW YORK - In April, as part of an Irish theater festival in which several professional Philadelphia companies took part, a curious little play called Dublin by Lamplight , with all the actors in clownface, opened in Center City in the large space at Broad Street Ministries. Now Inis Nua Theatre, the company that staged it, has reopened the production Off-Broadway, at the suite of theaters called 59E59. The setting by Meghan Jones has been scaled down to fit the New York space, and the six-member cast includes two new actors.

DUBLIN - Somewhere in Ireland, a burglar has the heart of a saint. Officials at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin said yesterday that they're distraught and perplexed over the theft of the church's most precious relic: the preserved heart of St. Laurence O'Toole, patron saint of Dublin. O'Toole's heart had been displayed in the cathedral since the 13th century. It was stored in a heart-shaped wooden box and secured in a small, square iron cage on the wall of a chapel dedicated to his memory.

The Board of Commissioners unanimously approved Tuesday the appointment of Paul A. Leonard as township manager, officially bringing an end to Gregory Klemick's 12 years of service in that role. For the last year, Leonard has performed some of the manager's duties, serving as deputy township manager, a position created to ease the transition. Klemick resigned Jan. 1 because he has multiple sclerosis. "Greg was hardworking," board Chairman Richard R. Rulon said in an interview.

With his broad smile, deep eyes and wild hair, does anyone look more the Irish poet than Seamus Heaney? With a poetry rooted in the history of his native land, with verse that rises and falls like the lush landscape, does anyone sound more the Irish poet than Seamus Heaney? And yet, as befits the latest recipient of the world's most prestigious literary award, Mr. Heaney's work transcends nationality and place to touch a universal longing. His poems "exalt everyday miracles and the living past," said the Swedish Academy as it awarded him the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature last week.

The Pride of Parnell Street at Act II Playhouse in Ambler is a love story. Like so many Irish plays, it's told in monologues, making it seem more like storytelling than like conventional, dialogic theater. Sebastian Barry's couple, Janet (Kittson O'Neill) and Joe (David Whalen), live a rough, tough, hardscrabble life, financed entirely by robbery, punctuated by violence. So it's surprising only to Janet when Joe beats her up after the Irish football team loses an important match.

Frank Timoney wants to get a few things straight about his cousin, John, the Philadelphia police commissioner. First, his real name is Sean. "Over here, we call him by his Irish name," said Frank, a retired Dublin cop who spent 36 years on the force. Sean it is. As for this thing in Esquire magazine about John - er, Sean - being the best cop in the country? "Well, he's not the best cop in Ireland," Frank quipped. "The best cop in Ireland just retired. " This is going to be good.

Bloomsday, the literary celebration of James Joyce's modernist classic Ulysses , is held across the world every June 16.

The local Bloomsday event features a daylong reading of passages from the novel by more than 75 local men and women drawn from every walk of life at three locations - the steps of the Free Library of Philadelphia's Central Library, Rittenhouse Square, and the Rosenbach Museum & Library.

THE DESCRIPTION is perfect, given the occasion. Longtime journalist Franz Lidz likens his childhood friend Arn Tellem, the iconic sports agent, to a traditional Jewish dish. "What separates him from others is he's kind of a gefilte fish in a sea of sharks," Lidz says. Tellem and Lidz, friends since the age of 9 at Belmont Hills Elementary School in Bala Cynwyd, are among seven notables who will be inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday at the Gershman Y, 401 S. Broad St. Tellem, who graduated from Haverford College in 1976 and Michigan Law School in 1979, has a client list that includes Chase Utley and Yu Darvish in baseball and Derrick Rose, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook in basketball.

After a mediocre showing last season, Wissahickon, with a nice blend of experienced players and promising underclassmen, is now making considerable noise. With Friday afternoon's 7-4 triumph over neighboring Upper Dublin in Fort Washington, the Trojans stayed unbeaten in Suburban One League American Conference action and bumped the Cardinals from their first-place perch. "It was an extremely important game for us," senior shortstop Nick Falso said. "This is always a huge rivalry.

DUBLIN, Ireland - In town for a few days, and not looking for roots or relatives, I'm here for the whiskey and beer. I am, however, accompanied by an intellectually curious and well-bred woman who is my wife, along with our college-age kids. And while she's a pretty good sport, having indulged most of my bad habits for more than 20 years, asking her to spend her only time in Dublin holed up in saloons is a bit much. So to make the trip work, I had to steel up and at least try to generate a healthy interest in museums, churches, and the like.

Upper Dublin found out first hand last year that playbacks are no place to try and reach the state tournament from. Wednesday night, Allison Chernow made sure the Cardinals would not have to go through all that again. The junior point guard tied things with a pair of free throws at the end of regulation and then made a layup late in overtime to send host Upper Dublin to a 36-33 victory over Perkiomen Valley in the second round of the District 1 Class AAAA tournament. The win guarantees a spot in states for the Cardinals, who fell a game short in playbacks last year.

Julie Cross is a lacrosse player. A pretty talented one, too. Good enough, in fact, that she'll be playing that sport for Syracuse next year. Watch the 6-foot-2 Upper Dublin senior on a basketball court, however, and you may start thinking she's pursuing the wrong sport in college. Cross averages more than 15 points a game for the Cardinals, and her tremendous 30-point, nine-rebound effort Saturday propelled Upper Dublin to a 65-38 win over Pennridge in the first round of the District 1 Class AAAA tournament.

What's the difference between the Allison Chernow of this season and the Allison Chernow of last season? Control. It's all about control. The junior point guard for the Upper Dublin girls' basketball team concedes she lacked it at times a year ago. She would be out of control dribbling in the open court, or out of control driving to the basket. She also confessed to getting easily frustrated. She wasn't quite a "hothead," Chernow said, but had to "pull myself together. " She started putting it all together by the end of last season, her first as a starter for Upper Dublin.

Pennsbury's Mason Houriet said his team's running game was a bit slower in a 25-14 win Friday night over Upper Dublin compared to previous games. He said Upper Dublin knew to expect that his team would rely heavily on the run to control the District 1 Class AAAA semifinal. The senior center said teams usually know that by this time of the season. A bit slower is a bit of an understatement. Charles Snorweah carried the ball 45 times for 305 yards. He found space up the middle as Houriet and his linemates dominated the line of scrimmage.

Upper Dublin lined up to punt when Stacey Gardner noticed something about the Council Rock North punt team Friday night. Gardner, standing between the offensive line and the punter, motioned for an audible, took a direct snap, and ran 55 yards for a touchdown, with Council Rock North defenders still blocking for what they thought would be a punt return. Upper Dublin caught Council Rock North by surprise in its first playoff win in school history, a 48-14 victory at home, just as it had caught District 1 by surprise in its ascension.
