In 30 years of living in Dublin’s inner city, I don’t think I’ve ever seen scenes this bleak. Homeless people from Ballyfermot, Clondalkin, north inner city and Latvia deserve better

Thanks Paul

This morning.

Thomas Street, Dublin

On the left is a cycle lane running along Thomas Street to James’s Street. I counted 18 cars parked in it this morning. The same cars are parked there all day everyday, even though there is a paid carpark on the left.

That road is so dangerous now with the increase in rerouted bus traffic and the increase in traffic from the on-going works in James’s hospital.

You also have to deal with the cars being over the white lines and the cars and buses being forced into your path by the traffic island on the right.

And all that before having to deal with the hell which is the James’s Street Luas tracks just ahead.

Earlier: Ah here

This afternoon.

At the Spire, on Dublin’s O’Connell Street.

Supporters of a #MeToo rally have been gathering since 12.30pm.

A Facebook post about the event states:

The feminist movement is calling a rally in response to the impact of the mistreatment of women in the justice system. This event is open to people of all genders affected by domestic and sexual violence.



In Belfast…

A similar rally is taking place.

From today’s Irish Times sports supplement which talks about “the only way to beat Dublin” in Gaelic football. Apparently it involves making Dublin play against Dublin

We’ve made an authentic tourist video about Dublin for client Failte Ireland. Working with production house Butter and director Yousef Eldin (formerly of Mongrel magazine) we went on a guerilla-style 3-day shoot before Christmas and captured drag queens, beer, urban cowboys, and rain. We also worked with Nialler9 to commission Le Boom to work on a bespoke track.

We think it’s an authentic love letter to the city and we hope your readers will like it!
