What is Yuri’s Night you ask?
Well in 1961 this person called Yuri Gagarin made history by being the first person in space – the date was April 12th. So every year on April 12th there is a global party and people all over the world celebrate what has now become known as Yuri’s Night. Not in Dublin?
