In The Arms Of An Expert.

In Blog, Politics by FedaynLeave a Comment

  Conor McCabe is bringing a little humour to the tedium with his collages and his reports from the Banking Inquiry. Here’s one fine example: “When I was a child in primary school my way of dealing with Irish class was to find a word in the question that matched a word in the text and hope for the best. The sentence I would find would be the one I’d … Read More

In #rabble9, Culture, Interviews by Rashers Tierney5 Comments

The work of poet Lewis kenny takes in everything from skagged out MDMA session victims and urban gentrification, right up to the importance of cherishing your ma. Rashers Tierney grabbed him for a chinwag about what makes him tick. We came across your videos on Youtube, saw you pop up at a We’re Not Leaving gig and a spoken word event in the Boh’s bar – can you introduce yourself … Read More

They Haven’t Gone Away You Know.

In Blog by Rashers TierneyLeave a Comment

Just as it seemed things had gone quiet on the We’re Not Leaving front, they’re back in the meeja tag teaming with Peter McVerry and spinning common sense about rent controls in our unfair city. They’re launching a policy document based on the German rent control model and exhibition of photos submitted to them by young folks hunting out accomodation. It’s all taking place down at the Migrants Rights Centre … Read More

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

#LookUp: Raising The Standard.

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. One of the advantages of this towering behemoth of late 1960’s brutalist architecture is how it frames the old village of Phibsborough in partnership with the lights of Dalymount. So, it’s near impossible to get lost or misdirect eegits home. You see those … Read More

A Chancery Would Be A Fine Thing.

In Blog by Rashers Tierney74 Comments

One of Dublin’s most iconic eyesores has come up for rent. 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

No News Like Old News.

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
