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.

DUBLIN - Heading downtown after the game for dinner, the taxi driver, listening to Gaelic football on the radio, was slightly surprised. Driving fans around Dublin for the past few days and somewhat unfamiliar with how college football works, he was under the impression that Penn State's season opener against Central Florida was a championship match. No, Saturday's Croke Park Classic was just a regular-season game. But you couldn't blame him for thinking otherwise. Advertisements covered all corners of the city.

My son, Martin, a junior English major at St. Joseph's University, is taking full advantage of the many opportunities that have come his way at SJU - including the study abroad program. He spent the last semester in Galway, Ireland, at the University College of Galway. Being of Irish heritage, and with a great love of Irish folk music (along with a great love for my son), I was quick to jump at the chance for a visit. We spent a special and memorable week together in Galway, Cork, and Dublin.

Mrs. McCarthy used everything from playing cards to kangaroo bones, tea leaves to candle flames, and sand to stones in predicting the future, she told Philadelphia Daily News reporter Joe Clark.

Ryan Stover's 43-yard scamper, with the savvy quarterback avoiding a sack and then dodging several would-be tacklers, gave Upper Dublin a 14-7 lead early in the third quarter. That sensational run gave his squad a real shot at stunning Allentown's Parkland and earning a berth in next weekend's PIAA Class AAAA state final at Hersheypark Stadium. But the Trojans, gradually wearing down the smaller Cardinals in the trenches, responded with a long scoring drive and added two more touchdowns, capitalizing on an interception and safety, to claim a 30-14 semifinal victory Saturday afternoon.

Upper Dublin's senior class put the football program, previously an afterthought when it came to district and state playoffs, on the map over the last three seasons. With solid coaching and a team-first approach, the squad totaled 34 victories against only five losses. Coming off last year's surprising run to the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA semifinals, the Cardinals bettered that showing this season by winning 14 games and claiming top district honors for the first time. The magical and inspiring journey came to an end Saturday afternoon, as the undersize Cardinals stayed even with Allentown power Parkland deep into the third quarter but bowed, 30-14, in a state semifinal at Souderton.

Ashley Barber was sitting on the passenger side. Her sister Amanda was driving. It was 10 a.m. Thanksgiving morning last year, and the two were singing along to a Fetty Wap song after stopping at Dunkin' Donuts. They were heading up the Northeast Extension to Allentown to pick up their great aunt and take her back to their grandmother's house in Maple Glen. That's the last thing the Upper Dublin senior remembers. She doesn't recall the 18-wheeler truck that rear-ended their vehicle.

Jack Rapine's smooth transition from offensive guard to tight end has played a key role in Upper Dublin's record-setting season. "It's a lot different, but I like it," the senior captain said. "I'm pretty much a blocking tight end, but I also enjoy running routes and making catches. " On Saturday afternoon at Souderton, with a scoring grab and two touchdown-paving receptions, Rapine helped the Cardinals storm past North Penn, 46-21, for the program's first District 1 Class AAAA football title.

Upper Dublin's Bret Stover got emotional even before the start of the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA football final Saturday against North Penn, choking up while talking to his players in the locker room. "I didn't want it to end here," Stover said. "I wanted to have at least one more week of coaching these kids. We wanted to take the next step. " The Cardinals did just that, exploding for 29 unanswered points in the second half and claiming the program's first district title with a 46-21 romp over the Knights before a packed crowd at Souderton.

Just like his former teammates at La Salle, Upper Dublin's Isaiah Henrich is enjoying a successful playoff run. And the possibility exists that he and the Cardinals could face the Explorers in two weeks. With his rugged play at offensive tackle and defensive end, Henrich helped Upper Dublin turn back Pennsbury, 24-14, in a PIAA District 1 Class AAAA semifinal playoff game Friday night in Fort Washington. "Those are still my brothers," the 6-foot-5, 240-pound senior lineman said of La Salle.
