Come for the corkscrew curls.
Stay for the excellent ‘finds’.

If you happened to be watching ‘The Late Late Show’ on Friday you may remember me as the Man with the Lockdown Hair.
I also appeared to display some finds (ie. whiskey vending machine, front doors of Bewley’s, Tivoli sign, etc.) and plug the first series of the TV show ‘Irish Pickers’. Ryan is a big supporter of the show.
It is essentially a road trip around Ireland in the search for quirky old items that tell the story of Ireland’s past. It is available to view on Sky on Demand and NOW TV. I believe it is good escapism TV for the current climate and something Broadsheet readers might enjoy….
Watch ‘Irish Pickers’ here
