Players Please writes:

On Sunday October 3, neighbours will have a chance to delight others with the things they no longer need and celebrate the change of the seasons with Halloween costume competition and many other games and prizes.

Just set up a stall outside your front door and you’re good to go
! Don’t have anything to sell – don’t worry! Just go for a stroll in the neighbourhood to join in on the fun.

Participants are asked to consider donating part of it to support the Players Please D8 Residents Association. All funds will be used for the judicial review regarding the proposed over-development of the former Player Wills factory and Bailey Gibson sites.

Register your stall here

Ciarán – Crazy House Prices tweetz:

€1,200 per month for this. You’d get more space in a prison cell. What do you do if you have notions though and want to actually own some clothing? Or belongings? But sure you can hardly expect those luxuries for only €1,200 per month….

In fairness.

Where is the ex-synagogue across the road from an ex-Protestant church that’s now a mosque?

What iconic rock song had its first ever Irish live performance in the National Stadium in 1971?

Well done.
