7am O’Connell St.

In #rabble13, Blog, Illustration, Print Edition by Benny Profane0 Comments

Benny Profane takes over this edition of our regular flash fiction column, and finds himself wandering around in the shadow of the spire with a raging comedown. Sounds familiar. Coming-to on O’Connell Street. It’s 7a.m on a Sunday morning in mid-March. I can’t remember at what point I left the rave. I’m in that delirious and tenuous twilight stage of inebriation; after the high and becoming more lucid but still … Read More

Gombeen #13: The Box.

In #rabble13, Blog, Gombeen, Humour, Print Edition by admin0 Comments

Stephen Donnelly emerged on the national scene in 2011 as a white-hot ball of suburban middle class indignation. With his shiny suits and technocratic, apolitical style, he won followers for his ability to give our ruinous old establishment a bougie-common sensical dressing down. A couple of years would pass where he let his ego lap it up, before gradually the sheen started to come off. He notably voted for the … Read More

Is The ESB “Techwashing” Israeli Apartheid?

In Blog, Politics by Kevin Squires0 Comments

Above: BDS campaigners in Dublin back in March 2016. Courtesty of the IPSC. With little fanfare, in May 2015 the ESB signed a contract with a start-up called Driivz to provide an “enhanced charge point management system” for electronic vehicles, basically the software that links EV chargers nationwide.
