This year, At it Again! were invited to the President of Ireland’s Bloomsday Garden Party in Áras an Uachtaráin! A ball was had by all in stunning surroundings under a beautiful blue sky. We enjoyed performances by the best of Irish literary and musical talent, including a rousing rendition by Mrs President, Sabina Higgins of the Citizen from Ulysses

We entertained the guests with readings from our Romping through Ulysses book on top of this beautiful old tram. Fittingly, Olhausen is mentioned in Ulysses.

We finished the day with a bit of croquet on the President’s law and a dance with Sabina Higgins. As you do ;). It was a splendid day and will be remembered with a big smile.
