A new quarterly magazine about Dublin, called We Are Dublin, was launched by Conor Purcell in The Library Project in Temple Bar last night.

While still based in Dubai, Conor Purcell published several issues of his travel magazine We Are Here; two about Dubai and one about Kathmandu. The issues were put together using an iPhone for photography and laid out on a laptop – he really was there. They were a fascinating paradox of high-quality content and lo-fi presentation.
Conor has now moved to Dublin, where he has just launched the first of a new quarterly, We Are Dublin. It follows the same template as We Are Here but, aside from the blue-sky cover, presents a very different world. The new magazine is less about travel and more about living in a place, but it sets itself clear boundaries from the start, promising PR-generated stories. History, sociology, memoir, theatre and retail all figure. It’ll be interesting to see how it develops as Conor gets to know his new home.”
The magazine is available from The Irish Design Shop, on Drury Street; Designist, on South Great George’s Street; Indigo & Cloth, in Temple Bar; The Winding Stair, on Lower Ormond Quay; and the Gallery of Photography in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar. It will also be available from Love Supreme coffee bar in Stoneybatter soon.
