The latest edition of The Phoenix magazine reports that on the day the general election was announced, January 14, the Natural Bakery outlet in Ranelagh was closed.

The next day the former bakery became a campaign office for Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy.

The magazine reports:

According to Dublin City Council’s planning office, there is no record of any application for a change of use or the erection of large election signs.

Now, after various Ranelagh residents raised objections, the Planning Office’s enforcement squads are on the case.

Murphy may now have to make a belated planning application for retention of his pop-up office, although it is likely to shut its doors sometime in mid-February when the DBS ballot papers have been counted…..

Ranelagh, Dublin 6.

Rachel Elliman photographed this black fox which wandered into One Kinda Folk café in the courtyard of Yoga Dublin in Dartmouth Road.

They write:

“We are huge animal lovers here at One Kinda Folk and are absolutely buzzing after this very rare beauty decided to come by for a coffee… Anyone know anything about Black foxes? The most beautiful boy we’ve ever seen!”

Further to this, Colm Walsh writez:

“The colouration is a neotenic trait — retaining juvenile characteristics — associated with tameness and friendliness.

A lot of the Novosibirsk foxes are black, silver, or even spotted or piebald, and have floppier ears and waggier tails.

Paolo Viscardi of the Dead Zoo thinks it’s more likely that it is a domesticated fox (descended from the Novosibirsk foxes) that was being kept as a pet and escaped or was released.”
