it was the lord and lady lieutenant but she couldn't see what Her Excellency had on because the tram and Spring's big yellow furniture van had to stop in front of her on account of its being the lord lieutenant.

cf Bloom

Beyond Lundy Foot's from the shaded door of Kavanagh's winerooms John Wyse Nolan smiled with unseen coldness towards the lord lieutenantgeneral and general governor of Ireland.

The Right Honourable William Humble, earl of Dudley, G.C.V.O., passed Micky Anderson's all times ticking watches and Henry and James's wax smartsuited freshcheeked models, the gentleman Henry, dernier cri James.

(a poke at Henry James seems unjoycean/petty to me)

Over against Dame gate Tom Rochford and Nosey Flynn watched the approach of the cavalcade. Tom Rochford, seeing the eyes of lady Dudley on him, took his thumbs quickly out of the pockets of his claret waistcoat and doffed his cap to her.

A charming soubrette, great Marie Kendall, with dauby cheeks and lifted skirt, smiled daubily from her poster upon William Humble, earl of Dudley, and upon lieutenantcolonel H.G. Hesseltine and also upon the honourable Gerald Ward A.D.C.

charming soubrette

if miss Dunne could see this poster, she's surely watching the cavalcade, unmentioned here

From the window of the D.B.C. Buck Mulligan gaily, and Haines gravely, gazed down on the viceregal equipage over the shoulders of eager guests, whose mass of forms darkened the chessboard whereon John Howard Parnell looked intently.

In Fownes's street Dilly Dedalus, straining her sight upward from Chardenal's first French primer, saw sunshades spanned and wheelspokes spinning in the glare.

why "straining her sight upward"?

the cavalcade has come 1.5mi in the time between Dilly parting from Simon and now-- maybe 15min? She's crossed the river, bought a book, talked with Stephen, and reached here? (Or does Stephen come later???)

(can Mulligan see Dilly?)

John Henry Menton, filling the doorway of Commercial Buildings, stared from winebig oyster eyes, holding a fat gold hunter watch not looked at in his fat left hand not feeling it.

1909 map

Where the foreleg of King Billy's horse pawed the air Mrs Breen plucked her hastening husband back from under the hoofs of the outriders. She shouted in his ear the tidings. Understanding, he shifted his tomes to his left breast and saluted the second carriage. The honourable Gerald Ward A.D.C., agreeably surprised, made haste to reply.

1909 map
"agreeably surprised" = everyone else has ignored him

At Ponsonby's corner a jaded white flagon H. halted and four tallhatted white flagons halted behind him, E.L.Y'S, while outriders pranced past and carriages.

behind not beside
1909 map

Opposite Pigott's music warerooms Mr Denis J. Maginni, professor of dancing &c, gaily apparelled, gravely walked, outpassed by a viceroy and unobserved.

By the provost's wall came jauntily Blazes Boylan, stepping in tan shoes and socks with skyblue clocks to the refrain of My girl's a Yorkshire girl. Blazes Boylan presented to the leaders' skyblue frontlets and high action a skyblue tie, a widebrimmed straw hat at a rakish angle and a suit of indigo serge. His hands in his jacket pockets forgot to salute but he offered to the three ladies the bold admiration of his eyes and the red flower between his lips. As

Boylan and Doran were passed by Patsy just one block south, and Dignam will have reached Merrion square before the cavalcade passes him... so Boylan either spent that whole time with Doran, or stopped somewhere else...?

"high action" = high-stepping of horses
