As they have done every year, President Higgins and Sabina will mark Bloomsday.
This year, the Bloomsday celebrations will take the form of online video performances by actors, singers and musicians performing in the grounds of Aras an Uachtaráin.
The President and Sabina have invited artists Barry McGovern, Margaret Toomey, Brenda McSweeney, Noel O’Grady, Eavan Gaffney, Clinton Liberty, John Feely and Fran O’Rourke to perform at Áras an Uachtaráin as part of the President's efforts to support Irish artists during the Covid-19 crisis.
The Bloomsday event forms part of the ‘Imagination and the Nation’/’Samhlaíocht agus an Náisiún’ initiative by the President.
The event will be broadcast on Oireachtas TV, and will also be also available on the Áras an Uachtaráin Youtube channel.
