    #theRant: Keep It Up!

    As we sit here scratching our heads in bewilderment at the fact that we managed to make ten of these ridiculous fucking things, when we never even knew if #rabble1 would get past our late-night, round-table, mashbag discussions, this fucking madhouse of a country becomes increasingly unpredictable, leaving us to wonder if, just maybe, it […]

    Grab Yourself A #rabble10 Swag Bag.

    We’ve chatted for a while about setting up some sort of subscriber based Swag Bag scheme to off set the cost of each issue. Yep, think the beano club ‘cept Dennis the Menace has worse language, scathing satirical wit and a shit day job. You’ll get a rabble care package with possibly more vitriol than […]

    A Battle Fought Before.

    In recent months there has been a plethora of housing action campaigns established, all wishing to raise awareness around the issue of working class housing (or the lack of it) in Ireland today.  Donal Fallon takes us back to the crowbar brigades and squatting tactics of the 1960s’ Dublin Housing Action Campaign. The 1960s witnessed […]

    #meEJit: We’re Adults! Get RTE Away From Us!

    It is remarkable just how much RTÉ can chime with Irish government policy. Oireachtas Retort looks at Montrose’s latest offering of unreality TV. The broadcaster’s role in normalising austerity and undermining dissent is nothing new but their lifestyle & entertainment content is equally insidious. Think of it as Fáilte Ireland for the home audience. Towards […]

Is Prohibition Doing More Harm Than Good?

Photo: The panel of speakers at the recent Students for Sensible Drug Policy conference in The Helix.  Yet another drug related death occurred this past weekend. Once again most media outlets are missing the point completely. Daniel Kirby, is the Chairman of the DCU branch of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. Here’s his take on how prohibition is […]



Catchy ditty from a band called Fierce Mild. A straight to the point anthemic message about getting out and voting in the marriage referendum. They’re playing a gig in the Grand Social tomorrow night. Ya might want to get down early, it’s getting fierce support online. Follow the #televisemusic tag for more underground Irish music. 


The Music Will Not Be Televised.

Keen rabble readers will have copped us banging out links about The Parlour TV  series.  It’s a sick little DIY TV  show coming from the Dublin Community TV stable and the people behind Community of Independents. Recently Ian Wilson of RTE and Cathal Funge from TXFM hopped on to chat about the state of Irish […]

Opus Dei And The No Campaign.

Fluffybiscuits did a little digging while the No campaigners were climbing lamposts around south Dublin. It looks like the “Mothers And Fathers Matter” shower are backed by Opus Dei. Ah Opus Dei – in Ireland since the 1940s to remind us that women are basically the Divil incarnate. They’ve been interfering in legislation, blocking reform and trying to […]
