It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the end of our Bernard Shaw adventure. At the end of October 2019 we will close the Shaw, Eatyard, all organisational, art and performance spaces and everything else in the building and yards – for good.https://t.co/CGDpyluYIv

Richmond Street South, Dublin 2.
Via Shaw & Shoddytonic Crew
We’ve tried really hard over the last few months to renew the lease, stay on longer, or buy the place. A lot of things didn’t go our way over the last 12 months either, but it’s out of our hands now unfortunately.
…Dublin is changing, we can all see and feel it but we are going nowhere & we won’t go down without a fight. We’ll start something else, somewhere else [ plans are afoot ] , and keep fighting the good fight.
There are so many young creative, clever, smart people in Dublin & Ireland at the moment – there’s lots to be optimistic about – but they need the spaces to meet each other, make plans, and make them happen!
We’ll have more info, lineups, events, wakes, next steps out over the next few days & weeks…. until the end of October we’re open as normal, we’re ready for y’all and we’re gonna party like its….2019!
Bernard Shaw closing as Wetherspoons opens up the road. Varadkar gets publicity with LCD Soundsystem and Kylie while this is the reality. For all the shite talk Fine Gael don't give a fuck about " local entrepreneurship" and people sneered at the slogan, 'take back the city'….

I assume Dublin City Council's current strategy of turning Dublin into an anonymous Northern UK town bombed during WW2 is to ensure stag/hen party tourists from those towns aren't scared off by anything novel.
