A clever film by Brian Shultz using the epic cinematography and classic tropes of natural history documentary – including a voiceover by the great Morgan Freeman – to showcase the rise of a dominant new ocean denizen.
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.
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.

Over to you, EP.
Make that futile gesture NOW!
Glass Bottle FIGHT!
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.
Sandycove, County Dublin.
Safety notice following a massive plastic spill at the Forty Foot bathing area and and Sandycove beach. Works by building contractors SIAC/Mantovani Group at the Dun Laoghaire Baths project have left plastic strips used in the concrete setting works washed up along the coastline.
Poolbeg, Dublin, yesterday.
