Are you in Cork?

Had enough of all that jazz?

Fancy an indoor souk for bits, bobs and whatnot?

The Bitten Flea Market launches today..We are opening today for Jazz Weekend and tomorrow from noon til six and hoping to run again before Christmas and on bank holidays. It’s being held in the ever elusive Cork Community Print Shop (behind the bus depot on Oliver Plunkett Street Lower, Cork city) and promises to be a menagerie of trash, trinkets and treasure, with loads of handmade and hand-me-down, bits and bobs, once loved furniture and stunning original art. Spaces for vendors are still available for tomorrow for anyone looking to peddle their commodities…

Ghana Penalty-2

They’ve gone Chile Ghana barmy.

Ireland’s Thomas McDonagh [above] slots home the winning penalty against Ghana at the Homeless World Cup yesterday at Plaza de la Ciudadania, Santiago, Chile.

Match report via the Homeless World Cup

The match for the 5th and 6th place of the World Homeless Cup was the last for the day at pitch number 2 Lombardia at Arena Civica.
The afternoon sun had no mercy as the two teams went out in very good spirits: Ghana singing and Ireland relaxed and focused.
Ghana was the first to have the chance to score, but missed the opportunity and there followed two quick goals by Ireland. Ireland was standing better on the pitch in these first minutes, but Ghana managed to fight back to 2:2. By the end of the first half Ireland had slightly more possession of the ball, both teams missed a lot of opportunities, yet Ireland was able to take the lead with 2 goals before halftime.
The second half was extremely dynamic as Ghana used every opportunity to reduce the goal difference and Ireland was eager to show more and only the great intervention of both goalkeepers prevented the result from being much more than 8:4.
An examplary game for fair-play, Irealand and Ghana summerized the spirit of the World Homeless Cup under the passionate cheering of the Scottish street team [cheering in the stands].”

A clear headed documentary on cannabis in Ireland.

Featuring Limerick physician William O’Shaugnessy, discoverer of the medical properties of cannabis, Mr Nice, Mr Ming, Prof Crown, addiction counsellors and a covert mildly paranoia-inducing visit to a grow house.

Maker Paul Roban writes:

The intention of this documentary is to explore the role of cannabis in 21st Century Ireland, not least due to growing usage within the mainstream, but also because of our failure to prevent its distribution. For this reason, we need to question the resources ploughed into the ‘war on drugs’ and whether both the time and manpower called upon is justifiable when it appears that all other progressive nations are either entirely decriminalising cannabis or relaxing their laws on its possession.

(Made before the Summer cabinet reshuffle while Alan Shatter was Justice Minister,  James Reilly was Health and Ming was in the Dáil)

Prowlster caught up to interview [link below] the 25-year-old from Cabra West who has matured from boombap rap to soulful hip-hop. Confident, articulate and serene as all get out.
