SPUDS!!!

Kaethe Burt O’Dea has become one of Dublin’s most dedicated community activists, every time we meet her she’s heading up another amazing project for the better good. One of the things she’s currently working on is the SPUDS project, promoting biodiversity and awareness surrounding our most treasured of Irish possessions, the potato.

Sunday 18th She’s holding an event in the Fumbally, a Tastefest of all things SPUD. There will be talks from David Shaw, David Langford and Dermot Carey, performances from Maeve Higgins and Paul Timoney and workshops for kids (and adults). A Family Friendly event and hopefully enough tasty dishes to go round (Michelle Darmody from the Cake Cafe and Sheridans Cheesemongers will be bringing dishes among others)

 

Sunday 18th 2 – 6pm

We’ve been waiting for Jennifer Evans to finish her new album for too long! We don’t quite know if she’ll be playing the new stuff next Monday but either way its going to be one beautiful, beautiful show. Its an early one – 6AM  – Alabaster DePlume will be starting off at 6.30 and Jennifer will play through sunrise (which is officially 7.24am).

Coffee and eggs on the menu.

D.O.D at the Fumbally

We love people who have ideas and follow them through. David O Doherty wanted to see what people’s comedy acceptence levels were like before 9am. So he put on a free gig at 8.15am on a sunny thursday morning in July.

What a GREAT way to start the day. And he was totally on to a winner with the early morning gig idea. In the days after there were suggestions of Jane Fonda–esque workouts before work, motivational talks, more comedy, music…

… sure why not.
