Phone fixed! Was having issues with camera hardware in the mobile after having stripped it down multiple times, finally put it back together correctly, got a decent 5,1 ROM and living the high life. Due for an upgrade next month. A photo posted by ConPhoto (@conphoto) on Jun 16, 2015 […]

International Literary Festival Dublin is hitting Dublin pretty hard this May with a broad swathe of events peppered across the nooks and crannies in town. Monkeyshine Theatre bring the Paper Princess play to the Ark in Temple Bar, Dublin 2. I zipped down to them before their show, and with […]

MusicTown

MusicTown
So it’s been a busy couple of weeks. Massively enjoyable and utterly Dublin-centric, which is only a great thing. So MusicTown kicked off, and its a Dublin City Corporation initiative, which brings in a few looser smaller strands and give them a big brother hug, and then peppers the city […]

Sean is a regular of my Instagram feed, always popping up with tightly graded shorn young folk of Dublin looking impossibly sharp. I believe he’s just moved into new shop in Temple Bar, Dublin and trundled across a version of this while backing (so many hard drives… ), and it’s […]
