Davy Byrne

Character Analysis

As with many characters in Ulysses, Davy Byrne was a real man, and his bar still exists today on Duke Street, forever immortalized by Joyce's writing. Byrne has a minor role in the novel, but he is noted as a man of moderation and comes across quite well. While the other men in the bar are quick to find ways to disparage Bloom, Byrne sticks up for him.
