You may remember this chilly scene (top)?

Why is he in his togs on Grafton Street?

Many mused.

Turns out it was a timelapse promo video for Love In The Wild, a new play starring shivering Anto Seery at the Axis theatre, Ballymun [Dublin 11] in March (dates and tickets here.

The play by Lisa Walsh and directed by Peter Sheridan centres around Ger Duffy (Anto), who:

…mostly dreams about Grainne McManus. There is a hole in his heart from the day she disappeared out of his life. That was five years ago, when they were lovers and addicts together.

One day, Grainne’s Da turns up at Ger’s hall door in Ballymun. Ger assumes that she’s dead; that she has become another statistic to heroin. But the news is different and lights the flame of hope in Ger’s heart…

Took a walk down Grafton Street for the first time in ages. By God is it in some poo state already. The cheap ass bollards, bins and lamps are chipped to bits. Not to mention dirty and vandalised. Worse the cement between the paving is washing away so they’re all coming loose.

I’m not an engineer but is this a serious flaw in the construction material? Where the council has already repaired they can’t even match the old paving. Can we really trust these guys to pave over College Green?

“And so it begins… Finally investigating how they are going to clean up Grafton Street and possibly put the sealant on the granite that they promised. They’ll be a long time at it with that buffer.”
