Over the course of twenty-four days Blackmore walked from the island of Ireland's most southerly point to its most northerly point. This perambulation was instigated by a mis-quote from James Joyce's Ulysses 'A good puzzle would be to cross Ireland without passing a pub' used on award plaques for the James Joyce Pub Award
