Does anyone know what the story is with the Bord Gais Energy Book Awards? I don’t want to slag off any of the nominated authors but many seem to be celebrities – some writing their first books – as opposed to writers. What is the criteria to be nominated? Is it decided by the book publishers? Full disclosure: I am a cookery writer (never nominated).


At 2pm.

A demonstration will take place – calling for an end to the system of Direct Provision – at the Garden of Remembrance on Parnell Square, Dublin 1.

All welcome.

End Direct Provision Demo


This afternoon.

More as we get it.

Tonight, Broadsheet will be migrating to a new server.

The site will be active, but you will be unable to comment between 8pm-10pm.

The new server promises to improve speed, usability and what have you.

Back with ‘De Saturday Papers‘ at 11-ish.

Thanks for your patience.

I know you don’t normally do this but i found a set of keys in the Phoenix Park today, at the footpath of Acres road, near the Papal Cross. Couple of car keys and several house keys, some with coloured covers.

I’d love to the them back to their owner. I thought about leaving them there in case the owner was retracing their steps, but I though they may have been there for a while!
