Previously: Thiago Cortes on Broadsheet
The Spire, O’Connell Street, Dublin 1.
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.

Government is failing to deliver public and affordable housing and failing to control rents.

You may notice some advertising
for a change for Deliveroo on the ‘sheet?
That’s because Broadsheet are the FIRST Irish website to become an affiliate partner with Deliveroo.
The deal means that
it’s the last throw of the dice let’s face it Deliveroo will pay the ‘sheet for every reader that uses their service.
The more you eat the more we eat.
We take a sip of your milkshake. You drink the majority of it.
Are we disrupting the online advertising industry and indeed supply side economic theory or are we…hey, are you eating/having that?
