Dublin City Council Waste Management Services tweetz:

“Thank you whoever you are. You’ve brightened up our day with your lovely poem and artwork on the South Circular Road. If anyone knows the artist or artists, please let us know. We would like to thank them.”


Also: ‘Bin man’? Classic everyday sexism.

People Before Profit Dublin City Councillor Tina MacVeigh writes:

Information about rents for Dublin City Council tenants.

Folks, I have been on to the Dublin City Council Housing Manager to find out what is being done for tenants who have lost their income due to the coronavirus.

Please DO NOT STRESS if you cannot pay your rent.

“ou can call the central number [01] 222 2222 and ask for the Rents Section, talk to them about your new circumstances and your rent will be adjusted straight away.

But if you don’t have the time or the space to do this for whatever reason, again people are not to stress.

I’m not stressing.

You’re stressing.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Tom Brabazon launched Dublin City Council’s new dog fouling awareness campaign entitled ‘Dog Poo, It’s Everybody’s Business’.

Dublin City Council’s Litter Prevention Officer, Ms. Bernie Lillis said:

“The message we want to get across to dog owners and dog walkers is when they clean up after their dog, they should not leave the doggie bag on railings or in bushes or on the streets or footpaths, instead they should ‘Bag it and Bin it’.”

Or, as they say in Bray…

Architect Dermot Bannon and gardener Diarmuid Gavin On RTÉ’s Room To Improve last month

This afternoon.

Madeleine Lyons, in The Irish Times, reports:

Celebrity architect Dermot Bannon has come a cropper with Dublin City Council over his own high-profile extension, which was the subject of a recent RTÉ series.

The target of the council’s ire is the rear garden structure under which Bannon famously shared an outdoor bath with celebrity gardener Diarmuid Gavin.

While a bumper Sunday night viewing audience watched the two chat in the (unfilled) bath under a moonlit sky, eagle-eyed council staff were drawn instead to the structure that Bannon fashioned at the end of his Drumcondra garden…
