James Joyce Quote: Can anyone tell me where and in what year James Joyce said this?

"When the Irishman is found outside of Ireland in another environment, he very often becomes a respected man. The economic and intellectual conditions that prevail in his own country do not permit the development of individuality. No one who has any self-respect stays in Ireland, but flees afar as though from a country that has undergone the visitation of an angered Jove."

James Joyce

I need to cite this quote but I can't find it's source. If anyone knows of what year he said it and where he said it I would be very grateful. Thanks
