News13 June 2019
To mark Bloomsday in Slovenia in 2019, the Embassy cooperated with the VDC POLŽ centre in Maribor that provides services to people with special needs. This resulted in a colourful and innovative presentation on 5 June by people with special needs of aspects of Ireland's history and culture. The presentation of music, dance, and stories was informed by year-long projects that involved learning more about Ireland. It was also inspired by Bloomsday and the fifteenth anniversary of the welcome Slovenia received in Ireland on the eve of its accession to the European Union. As you may have also seen, this event was covered in a report carried on one of the main news programme of the RTV SLO Channel 1 in Slovenia.
