Everyone is sharing this excellent photo of a young Michael D. Higgins at Slane

YASS, MICHAEL D.

THE YEAR WAS 1984.

That year, the Slane line-up included In Tua Nua, UB40 and Santana.

A certain Bob Dylan was the headliner, and he was joined by Bono and Carlos Santana for the encore.

And among the assembled revelers that day was a certain President Michael D. Higgins.

Look at him soaking up the sun in his jeans!

In honour of the day that was in it yesterday, people shared the photo all over Twitter.

And the general consensus was, well, that we have a deadly President.

YouTube totally mangled the subtitles on Michael D. Higgins’ Paddy’s Day address >

Do you have one of Ireland’s most common surnames?
