Have you seen this amazing photo of a young Michael D. Higgins at Slane concert?

The picture is being shared everywhere and the general consensus is that we have a deadly President.


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.
