Bairbre Power... Out and about
Miriam O'Callaghan was out of her signature red and into pink for the launch of the 26th annual Brennan's Bloomsday Bike Rally and Lunch in aid of the Irish Youth Foundation.
'James Joyce' himself, aka Graham Wilkinson, joined Miriam for the event and next Friday, June 7, will see over 150 cyclists take to the streets to follow Joyce's steps on Bloomsday with 400 guests for lunch at the Mansion House. I know, I know, Bloomsday falls on June 16 but this year the event, which celebrates Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses, is happening a little earlier. It's sponsored by Brennan's Bread and the cyclists, dressed in boaters and Edwardian attire, will set off from Stephen's Green to tour the city, stopping along the way for tipples and snifters.
