MICHAEL D HIGGINS
Stung by criticism of his praise for Fidel Castro, Higgins decides to show the country that he is not a man to be trifled with.
He gathers together the finest poets and street performers the village of Galway has to offer and together they come up with an interpretive spoken word and dance installation in Shop Street, condemning the ‘unhelpful’ and ‘problematic’ Irish attitude of laughing at the President every time he opens his mouth.
Highlight of the festivities include his old friend, former jailbird Margaretta D’Arcy who displays her opposition to Yankee American Imperialism by pretending to be mad. Sadly, nobody can tell the difference.
