At the weekend.
Possibly a tad risky using the M-fiddy to deliver dem chicken wings…
Deliveroo couriers are boycotting parts of Dublin
The information allowed riders to pin and colour code “areas de risco” or “danger areas” on Google Maps. Much of Dublin’s north east inner city, which includes communities like Summerhill, East Wall and Mountjoy Square and shopping and commercial districts like Henry Street or Talbot Street, are designated no-go zones. Deliveroo says that increased support for riders is under consideration and that it has been working with the Irish police.
Thanks Anton Chigurh
The gig economy takes advantage of migrant workers until it suits them. This exploitative system must end. Change will only come by ensuring all workers have decent working conditions (a decent living wage plus stable contracts of employment). 2/2

A vigil for Brazil-born Thiago Cortes, a 28-year-old Deliveroo cyclist who was killed following a hit-and-run on the north Liffey quays on Monday night, will take place at The Spire, O’Connell Street, Dublin 1.
I thought this was worth sharing as it’s a genuine tragedy and there are at least a few active cyclists on here.
Thiago had a wife and family, doing a job that so many people take for granted when they flip a few bob to the app for that delivery fee.
Cycling around at night, going to door-to-door to complete strangers during a global pandemic, all for a couple of beans per order.
I hope everyone can spare a thought for this poor fella next time they order delivery. There’s a cost greater than the 2.50 delivery charge.

Dublin city centre.
Not all superheroes wear robin egg blue roll-top backpacks .
Most preferring your standard cape.
[Green Party] councillor Lawrence Hemmings, for Donaghmede, Dublin 13, tweetz:
Bicycle locked. Deliveroo bag ready for the day’s work. The new working homeless.
Government is failing to deliver public and affordable housing and failing to control rents.
Gavan Reilly tweetz:
Interesting PR from Deliveroo – other than Leinster House (which has biggest population) the Govt building that orders the most takeaways is Josepha Madigan’s Dept of Culture & Heritage (although there are actually three depts in that building which may skew the figures)
