Going to the cinema this weekend?

Neil Curran (above) writes:

The sun is still shining, and the nation has a smile on its face as wide as Ronaldo’s penalty against Iran. But what will keep us entertained over the weekend? If you want to stick with the outdoors, you could head down to Carlow for the Bare Festival which runs on 6th and 7th July featuring acts such as Obie Trice and God is an Astronaut. If you’re out and about the capital today, do check out the promotional Scavenger Hunt for Elemental Pictures release of Dublin Oldschool

    Re: GAA. Vanessa was talking out of her backside. It is a homophobic organisation and no amount of bottom up activism is going to change that fact.

    If we have to sit and wait for those bigots to retire and / or die then so be it but don’t insult our intelligence by telling us we should spend OUR lives begging THEM to treat us as equally.

    It is up to them to change, not us.
