Successful Bloomsday Day 2024 in Monaco!

Huge thanks to the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society. The acting was fantastic and we all learnt a little bit more about Ulysses!

A warm thank you to Michael Flatley for this year's special display of James Joyce memorabilia and limited editions of Ulysses, kindly on loan from his private collection. And last but not least thanks to all who joined us - you were a great audience!

What a lovely literary afternoon at the Princess Grace Irish Library, on the square by the Prince's Palace and through the streets of Monaco-ville singing Molly Malone to the enjoyment of all.

Bloomsday in Monaco
Bloomsday in Monaco

A literary celebration of Jame Joyce's modernist masterpiece Ulysses.

We enjoyed a fusion of dramatic readings and song, delivered by local talent - the accomplished actors from Monaco-Ireland Arts Society. Everyone joined in the spirit and donned period dress and a hat!
