Northern Ireland World

For The First Time – Ireland Says YES to Molly Bloomsday as Annual Ulysses Celebrations Heads North

YES – Spectacle-led, family friendly, international all-female event honours Joyce’s most famous female character. Taking place at various locations across Derry and Donegal from June 13-16.

This year, for the first time, Bloomsday, the annual celebration of James Joyce and his masterpiece Ulysses, will become Molly Bloomsday as it spreads north of the border from Dublin for a spectacular all-women inaugural event in Derry and Donegal. More than 30 female artists and performers from across Europe will converge on Northern Ireland for YES, a new, free, four-day event of female creativity inspired by Joyce’s most famous female character, Molly Bloom.

From 13-16 June 2024, Derry will be alive with dance, music, food, public art, literature, conversation and spectacle, culminating in an epic 18-hour finale transposing the famed Dublin locations of Ulysses to new places north of the Irish border.
