“My other half’s bike was stolen from the rear of our place in Portobello [Dublin] at the weekend. It was locked with a serious looking kryptonite lock behind a locked gate. So who ever took it went to a lot of effort.
As you can see – it’s not easily missed. It’s a NoLogo Bike. With a Flip Flop hub – was flipped to single speed when we last had it – and it has no lights. The bike was a present from me for last Christmas. And his first ‘nice’ bike so he wasn’t that happy to see it missing over the weekend. Your lovely readers may be able to help?”



Pumpkin patch  at ‘Alright Pumpkin’ in Co Meath

Too soon?

Tom ‘Dylan’ Dillon, who runs the social media operation at the ‘sheet (leaving him enough time to be a full-time farmer, raise a large family and compete at slow chess) is diversifying his crop.

Known for his hay bale sculpting [teddy bears, trains, etc] Tom is betting everything on orange.

He writes:

“It’s the 19th of September and I know what you are all thinking, Halloween is just around the corner and you have nothing ready. Where are you, your family and your friends going to enjoy some wholesome fun this Halloween?

Or source large orange decorative vegetables to adorn your home? Allowing you a chance to impress your friends and neighbours with your elegant carving….

Do not fret.

Let ‘Alright Pumpkin’ help you…

Pumpin’ idea or grotesque US-imported ‘ween intensive farming caper?

Only YOU can decide.

It’s the Summer of 1988 and Cork’s emigration-generation are following the beat, in perfect time, to catch a new club night starting in Sir Henry’s: SWEAT. Deep follows the story of hapless vinyl junkie Larry Lehane, on the cusp of a new era for music. Turning the tables on two decades, from the rise of Acid House to the Euro changeover. Through Larry’s rose-tinted, smiley face, glasses, we witness the evolution of anUnderground scene, as the beat rises and fall.

“Some of your more, ahem, mature readers will recall, or not as the case maybe, those days when the clubs played decent music, vinyl was a currency and hangovers just didn’t exist.
Relive the glory days of clubbing, this time in the comfort of comfortable seats and clean surroundings….Riverbank Arts Centre would like to offer one lucky Broadsheeter two tickets for Deep. A good heyday clubbing story should secure them….”

Lines stay open until Midnight.
