MICHAEL D HIG­GINS

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - CONTENTS -

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.
