Today at 4pm we are opening on a first come first served basis. It’s would be our father’s birthday so feels appropriate. It’s a trial run for us and we’re nervous. Please do not be offended if we do not have space to accommodate you! #OpeningDay pic.twitter.com/y8dtQdYkC7

Jinx Lennon – North Louth
Please be seated for the Wee County’s premier punk-poet.
Jinx Lennon (top) takes no prisoners on this Spitfire-tirade about the Louth hinterlands from his wonderfully named new album Border Schizo Fffolk Songs For The Fucked.
Mark E Smith is smiling down from above.
Nick says: Louth and proud.
South William Street, Dublin 2
Cover a street like South William with canvas -its easy to do if you hire event guys -and allow all restaurants to have spaced out seating on the road outside so we can all go into town and relax without being squashed together dangerously. This will last five years so lets go.

Can you find out why we are only allowed 50 people in the 3Arena [Dublin]?, which is a lot bigger than this shop, and they are allowed 184?
Shop is too small to open during Covid, so it’s moved outside. pic.twitter.com/F8ZLNLCv4h
