Bloomsday Readings and Songs will be streamed lived form Dublin on Bloomsday, June 16, with appearances from Irish celebs including Caitriona Balfe, Aidan Gillen, Glen Hansard, David Norris, and more – tune in here!

It’s time to don that boater hat and join Caitriona Balfe, Aidan Gillen, Glen Hansard, David Norris, and more for a celebration of James Joyce’s Ulysses as part of the Bloomsday Festival’s flagship event “Readings and Songs.”

Bloomsday, June 16, the day in which James Joyce’s “Ulysses” unfolds, is a long-standing and treasured tradition. This year, the tradition will be kept alive online thanks to Bloomsday Readings and Songs, which will be streaming live from Dublin, the backdrop to Joyce’s famous novel.

You can tune into Bloomsday Readings and Songs live here on IrishCentral or over on IrishCentral’s Facebook on Bloomsday, June 16th, at 7pm IST / 2pm EST.

Every Dubliner has their own story about James Joyce, and no one more so than our best-known Joycean scholar, Senator David Norris, who has been at the heart of Joyce’s Dublin for almost 60 years. Senator Norris will introduce the show, featuring a cast of noted Irish writers, actors, musicians, pundits, and everyone in between, reading extracts from Ulysses. The readings will bring to life Joyce’s immortal words, from his description of Dublin’s “snot green sea”, to Molly Bloom’s famous “yes”.

Ulysses is composed in 18 episodes mirroring Homer’s Odyssey and takes place in over 18 locations around Dublin. Experience your personal odyssey through James Joyce’s epic novel from the comfort of your home.

Writers taking part this year’s Bloomsday Readings and Songs event include Colum McCann, Booker Prize nominee Donal Ryan, Paul Lynch, winner of the Kerry Group Novel of Year, crime writer Tana French, Mary Costello, recently shortlisted for the Dalkey Literary Award, Christine Dwyer Hickey, author of Dublin’s most recent One City One Book, and Peter Murphy, novelist, and vocalist with Cursed Murphy & the Resistance. International best-selling author Douglas Kennedy will be reading with his actress daughter, Amelia Kennedy.

Going from stage to page will be chanteuse Camille O’Sullivan, Jess Kavanagh of BARQ, spoken word artist Sasha Terfous, and Glen Hansard. While joining the Bloomsday Festival from TV, film and the stage will be Aiden Gillen, Kate Stanley Brennan, Emmet Kirwan, performance artist Bonnie Boux, and writer and director Gerard Stembridge. Bafta winner and four-time Golden Globe nominee actress, Caitriona Balfe, will be reading from Molly Bloom’s soliloquy.

Two Scottish brothers have created a hilarious social distancing sketch called Star Force, which features James McAvoy and Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe and Steven Cree.

Kevin and Ross Mains, originally from East Kilbride, co-wrote the project with Brendan O’Rourke over Zoom after finding themselves having free time during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kevin Mains, 30, who is known for starring in Outlaw King, Shetland and Mountain Goats, said:

“There is no work for acting this now and it’s a good way to pass the time and have a laugh…. And when someone like James (McAvoy) says he’ll take part, it makes the message of staying at home easier to take as you’re seeing these stars adhering to the guidelines.”

Ross Mains, 25, best known for his comedic sketches on BBC The Social, directed the clip which has been watched over 700K times.

Ross had previously worked with Outlander star Steven Cree, who showed the video to his friend James McAvoy and the Hollywood star immediately wanted to be involved in a future production.

The sketch took just just over a month to make as the stars had to social distance due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Ross Mains said: All the directing would need to be done on WhatsApp, with the actors recording and sending their lines through the messenger!”

He continued to say: “Like any film there were reshoots and difficulties but the actors were all very understanding of it.”

This Droughtlander has been one of the worst in recent memory for Outlander fans, more so for the scores of Diana Gabaldon‘s book lovers out there, because we know what’s coming next.

Ok, I guess I should say we THINK we know what’s coming next, as it’s highly likely things will be changed for the upcoming 4th season of the STARZ series.

This morning the official Outlander twitter account posted a photo of series star Caitriona Balfe as Claire Fraser sitting atop a horse in a forest.

“Caitriona’s smile is EVERYTHING,” the tweet read, and we have to agree with them. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to be in the same room with the Irish model-turned-actress, you know she really does have an infectious joyful personality, one that can light up a room no matter how dim.

Outlander season 4 has no official release date yet, but we’ll more than likely get an update during July’s San Diego Comic Con. [Source]



I am thrilled to be nominated for portraying the fierce and courageous Claire.
This role has been a dream to play—a woman who loves and fights with equal ferocity, whether it’s against the patriarchy or for the safety of her family.



And we are so happy with this! Congrats and good luck Cait!!!

#Droughtlander is almost over! Starz announced today that Season 3 will reunite us with Jamie and Claire on Sunday, September 10 at 8 PM EST, 519 days after Season 2 aired on Saturday, April 9, 2016. [Source]



Starz said today the third season of its hit time-travel saga Outlander will return in September, but no specific date is set.

The premium cabler in June announced a two-season pickup for the series from developer/executive producer Ronald D. Moore and Sony Pictures TV. The third season will consist of 13 episodes based on Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling Outlander series. In March, production and filming on the current season moves from its home base in Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa, to shoot sea voyage scenes on the former sets of Starz’s original series Black Sails. Production on Season 3 began in September and will wrap in June.

The Season 3 return comes months later than Season 2’s spring 2016 premiere.

“While ‘Droughtlander’ will last just a little longer, we feel it is important to allow the production the time and number of episodes needed to tell the story of the Voyager book in its entirety,” said Carmi Zlotnik, President of Programming at Starz. “The scale of this book is immense, and we owe the fans the very best show. Returning in September will make that possible.”

The story picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from each other, each haunted by the memory of their lost love.

“With the scope of the production and all of the intricate details that go into the Emmy-nominated sets and costumes, we had to make sure everything is kept to the high standard of the previous seasons and Diana Gabaldon’s beautiful story,” said Steve Kent, Senior EVP Programming at Sony Pictures Television. “We’re so proud of the incredible work that Ron and the Outlander team have done.”

Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Anne Kenney and Andy Harries serve as executive producers of Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television. [Source]
