Slattery’s, Beggar’s Bush, Dublin 4
Credit on tap?
Was in Slattery’s last night. Looked at the receipts. They charge an extra 20c for tapping your card. They weren’t apologetic…is this not illegal?
Survivors of the Tuam Mother and Baby Home and friends gathered at the site of the mass grave on Saturday for a Remembrance Day for the 796 children believed buried there.
Last month, to the dismay of survivor groups, Minister for Children Katherine Zappone released a letter she gave to Pope Francis regarding her hope that the Vatican will pay for the exhumation costs.

General release 9am this morning. 9am rolls around: all tickets gone. For all 3 nights!
Not the most important thing in the world I know but an absolute disgraceful state of affairs. I fear the only ones crying power are Ticketmaster…

Camping at the All Together Now Festival, Curraghmore Estate, County Waterford this weekend
So we are going to the All Together Now festival in Waterford this weekend in a camper van. I heard today that we are not allowed use the gas cooker or fridge because according to the moderator on the facebook page:
“No gas cylinders are allowed on site . Any gas will be confiscated on entry” and that we will have to disconnect and remove cylinders before arrival at the festival …
This kind of defeats the purpose having paid an extra €60 for a camper van ticket.
Seeing as all campervans fridges and stoves run off gas I am wondering how they are planning on enforcing this – practically every camper will have a cylinder, It seems a bit ridiculous to me.
Has anyone ever heard of this at any other festival?
