Paddy the anarchists pigging the Storehouse

Posted by Jason Roe on Mar 18, 2010 12:49:27 PM

I had a great St. Patrick's week/day this year. It was a bit of an odd one as it's my first year living in the city centre whilst the Paddy's day festival was on.

I've recently moved into an apartment, located on Capel Street with Louise. Before you ask, yes the noise from the street can be a pain sometimes. For anyone who doesn't know, Capel Street is a small one way street that is located directly at the end of one of our main pedestrianised shopping streets Henry Street. We are just far enough away to avoid most of the hustle and bustle. To be honest, the benefits of being so central really outweigh any of the negative stuff.

Last year I was invited to the grand stand by the guys at Pix.ie. I got some amazing photos but it was a bit of a pain not being able to leave the grand stand without having to walk through the parade. This years Paddy's day was a bit of an interesting one. I was invited by Eamon Leonard to watch the parade from his office roof top. We had such an amazing view! His office is located in the middle of Dame Street, just a stones throw from Dublin's City Hall.

Peter Donegan, green fingers gone wild

Posted by Jason Roe on Mar 18, 2010 10:41:15 AM

For anyone who doesn't already know, Peter Donegan is blogger who is obsessed with everything green. I have a lot of time for Peter and his greener events.

I did horticulture in school but always felt like I only had a summary view of the world of horticulture. After a lengthy phone conversation and a number of tweets Peter decided to try his hand at a DIY gardening course. I thought it was a wonderful Idea and signed myself and my other half Louise up straight away.

Peter has one space left available for March 20th. So make sure to drop him a line if your interested.

"Basically: this is for the [wo]man, parent, adult, child who wants to do a bit of green living but not farming. Enough to have summer salads, fresh herbs, maybe even some fruit – at the same time logic enough that you’ll watch footie/ daytime tv and go out rather than hug trees. You’d like a bit of green, you need a place to start but without getting bamboozled – and let it grow from here…."

On a slightly lighter note..The guys over at pix.ie, in conjunction with the Irish St Patrick's Festival are trying to muster up support for a huge photo sharing project. The project aims to help document this year's paddy's day festival. Genius! what better way to show the Yanks that we are still up for a good party!

Property pron an interesting trend!

I spotted this trend on google a few weeks back. It seems like Irish people have something new on their mind (an interesting mindset). The graphs look like a mirror image of each other. Maybe daft.ie should move into the adult entertainment business... Updated.. made this Safe for Work :)
