Further to your delusional struggle to save the unattractive Poolbeg chimney stacks [Pigeon House Rd, Ringsend, Dublin 4]. Nature is having her say. Here are some exclusive photos from a friend showing the state of the stacks on the inside and how they are falling apart from within. Ultimately they’re going to have to be demolished….

Who can save Poolbeg now?




Ah here.

The flutes?

Thanks Louis

Will the The Nialler9 Record Store Day illustration yesterday by Donough O’Malley be on sale as a print?

I just want to share with you and your readers that if anyone does want a print, well now you have the chance to win one!
The Social House are doing a giveaway on their Facebook page, just head on over and add your name: All available prints will be gone by the end of the day, in time to have it framed and on the wall by the weekend. But if you don’t have any luck then fear not, as I now have the prints for sale at my online print store here
