Bloomsday - June 16th
"is a commemoration observed annually on June 16th in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of IrishwriterJames Joyce and relive the events in his novel Ulysses, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904. Joyce chose the date because his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle happened on that day, when they walked to the Dublin urban village of Ringsend.
The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses...
The day involves a range of cultural activities including Ulysses readings and dramatisations, pub crawls and general merriment..." (Wikipedia)

The Murals of Northern Ireland "Murals have been painted in Northern Ireland for over 100 years.
In this documentary, leading murals historian Bill Rolston explains how they adapt to a changing political climate and the changing attitudes of republican and loyalist communities.
William Jackson, grandson of one of the first muralists, discusses the sense of identity that murals instill in communities.
Others look at murals as a tool for conflict transformation.
Jeanette Warke, manager of a youth centre in Derry~Londonderry, describes how they can have a positive impact on younger generations."
