The Princess Grace Irish Library has got a treat for the Principality with its very first Bloomsday. Actors from the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society will be accompanied by music on the bodhrán as they wander around The Rock, as Leopold Bloom once strolled the streets of Dublin.

For those unfamiliar with the Irish tale, Bloomsday celebrates June 16, 1904, which is the day depicted in James Joyce’s novel Ulysses. Bloomsday is named after Leopold Bloom, the central character of the novel that chronicles Bloom’s adventures over the course of an ordinary day in Dublin.

The action will kick off in front of the Princess Grace Irish Library on rue Princess Marie de Lorraine at 13:45, and will last 40 minutes. To discover more, click here.
