‘Pigeons of Discontent’.
Dublin 7 Vs
flying rodents pigeons!
By Paddy Cahill, who writes:
Taking inspiration from an article by Cónal Thomas in the always excellent Dublin Inquirer, I made a short documentary about the seemingly contentious Pigeons of Stoneybatter…
It looks at the local Pigeon population while we hear some impassioned opinions from some of the neighbourhoods residents….

Grand Canal, Dublin yesterday.
This is a cosy single bed, self-contained small flat we have available, 3 months minimum. It is very quiet, away from street noise, so you can get a restful night’s sleep.

The Dublin 7 ‘gentrification’ continues.
Via Rob Doyle in today’s Guardian:
In the aftermath of the culturally barren Celtic Tiger years, Ireland is said to be undergoing something of a literary rebirth. It’s now harder than ever to swing a cat in Dublin without skulling a handful of writers and dole-queue poets. Debut novels and short story collections are launched with pummelling frequency. Stoneybatter has become a hub of this renaissance.
A word to the hungry: Stoneybatter’s tastiest almond croissants are found in the Green Door Bakery on Manor Street – but only if you get there early enough, which I have managed on no more than two occasions. A few doors down is a real gem, still largely unheralded: the pleasant and unpretentious Biscotti Caffe, which offers what is hands down Dublin’s most satisfying full Irish breakfast (available all day, too).
