One Day A Rain Is Going To Come.

In Blog by Rashers Tierney4 Comments

As more flash flooding caught the city unawares this morning, we took out our unsteadi-cam while walking the dog and captured some of the flood waters hurtling through Griffith Park. The Tolka river is usually as quiet as a mouse but when heavy rains come, it turns into something out of a white water rafting adventure brochure. Back in 2002 the Shelbourne Soccer Club saw extensive damage to its Tolka Park ground, … Read More

In #rabble9, Blog, Culture, History by Rashers Tierney14 Comments

  Phibsboro Shopping Centre is one of Dublin’s most domineering buildings. Rashers Tierney writes about the fortress of pre-cast grey concrete that haunts the horizons of D7.

The home of the former tax office at Chancery Place is actually called River House but for most of us its probably referred to with a string of far uglier names. Not everyone pours scorn on the dank looking concrete shell though –  the wonderful Built Dublin architecture blog even goes as far to declare a strange grá for the spot. … Read More

Doing the rounds on social media ahead of tomorrow’s Irish Water  protests is a Niall O’Connor ‘EXCLUSIVE’ in the Hedild. It mirrors a piece by ‘Ace reporter’ Ken Foy of the Indo from July in which he hacked up a two year old Garda operation and vomited it onto the page. The lads are not alone. ‘Operation Aughrim’ is an all-encompassing codeword for what appears to be regular Garda business that is … Read More
