This afternoon.

At O’Carroll’s shop on O’Connell Street, Dublin 1.

Leprechaun-themed St Paddy’s ‘items’ on sale and tried on by Sabine Groepl from Germany.

Meanwhile…

Darragh Doyle tweetz:

A lot of novelty green plastic will be bought this St Patrick’s Day. A lot will be wasted. It doesn’t have to end up in landfill. @EPICMuseumCHQ will swap the novelty plastic for tickets to the Museum. It will then be donated to Social Enterprise @ReCreateIreland for reuse.

In fairness.

‘Two Hundred and Seventy’ (2018)  – an installation by Nils Völker at Museum für agewandte Kunst (MAK) in Vienna,

A concave array of 270 plastic bags suspended from the ceiling inflate and deflate rhythmically – their movement controlled and  synchronised by 1000 precisely aligned fans and 45 circuit boards.

A constant crinkling sound fills the museum’s vast hall. Like the rustle of tissue paper. Or the rush of the tide.

Or that locust-person in Screen 12, two seats away with the big bag of M&Ms.

Now you have it.

This morning.

Dollymount Strand, Dublin

TV Presenter Amanda Byram at the launch of Sky Ocean Rescue [a campaign to encourage people to reduce their single-use plastic use] with a giant plastic humpback whale named Poly . A survey has found that 85% of Irish people are concerned by Ireland’s plastic usage. What Sky has to do with any of this is a mystery that may never be solved.
