This morning.

O’Connell Street, Dublin 1 and O’Connell Street Luas stop.


….responding to the government’s proposed working from home bill, Social Democrats Enterprise Spokesperson Catherine Murphy said:

“I was concerned, before the legislation was published, that the Bill would be tepid and underwhelming. Those fears have now been borne out. Instead of granting employees a right to work from home, the legislation is an employers’ charter which creates wide-ranging exemptions from the entitlement.

“For instance, a request to work from home can be refused if an employer feels there is a “potential negative impact” on quality of work or performance – not an actual or verified negative impact. These refusal grounds are so all encompassing, they make a mockery of the stated purpose of the legislation.”

Yesterday: Not Remotely Like A Right

I have been looking at rainfall for cyclists and working out how often people actually get wet when cycling to work in Ireland.

– People get wet on their way to/from work three times as much in Galway as they do in Dublin.

– If you cycled to work every work day in Dublin in 2015, you would have gotten wet 35 times in the year, compared to 115 in Galway and 67 in Cork.

There you go now.

How wet is a cycling commute in Ireland? Pretty wet… if you live in Galway (Shane Lynn)


This evening.

Tree down on Lower Dodder Road [Dublin]. Pain in the hula-hoop if you’re using it to get to Rathgar area.

Probably the scariest picture you will see from Limerick in the wake of Storm Darwin. Knocklisheen road. No one in van at the time.

Youtuber, ReeeceIRL‘s compilation of two months worth of light-jumpers, cutters-up and dozy pedestrians that make biking to work in Dublin something of a hazard, all set to the apt strains of Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Asshole Song.’
