Good news for those visiting Dublin: the Martello Tower, which closed for the summer earlier this year, will reopen. Though open on the weekend of Bloomsday in June, the Tower has been closed the entire season because of funding shortages.  Now, thanks to generous volunteer efforts, organized as a group called Friends of the Joyce Tower Society, the Tower will be open for visits seven days a week from 10am until 6pm through the end of September.  Fáilte Ireland, the organization currently operating the Tower, is in discussion with Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council about permanently handing over operation and promotional duties.  Here is a link with more information.
