Joseph Patrick Nannetti in Ulysses

By James Joyce

Joseph Patrick Nannetti

Nannetti was an Irish-Italian master printer and politician. He was a member of Parliament from the College Division of Dublin in 1904, and was elected mayor in 1906. He appears briefly in "Aeolus," and when the men discuss him becoming mayor in "Cyclops," the citizen denounces his Italian origins.
