James Joyce’s Passport Sold For €69,747

James Joyce’s wartime family passport, recording the writer’s movements across Europe as he wrote his famous ‘durty buke’ Ulysses , has sold for €69,747 at auction in London today.

The auction result is something of a record, but still comes nowhere near the astronomical sums reached by Charles J.Haughey when as Taoiseach in the 1980’s he successfully peddled several Irish passports to a number of shady yet wealthy individuals from the middle east – including one to Sheikh Khalid bin Mahfouz…a brother in law of Osama Bin Laden.

A staff reporter from The Emergency attempted to contact Mr Haughey in Hell for a comment on the Joyce sale but was told that the former Fianna Fail leader was “too busy ‘fixing’ things down here” to speak.
