Repatriation for Yeats, but not for Joyce, why not?

William Butler Yeats was repatriated to Ireland in September 1948, through the good offices of Minister of External Affairs, Sean MacBride, together with President Sean O’Kelly. However they did not look kindly on a repatriation for James Joyce. Why not?

Anthony J. Jordan is a prolific biographer. His most recent book is 'James Joyce Unplugged'. He recently donated his extensive Archive to the National Library of Ireland.
