My old primarily school celebrated its 160th birthday this week! It was slightly strange but also really lovely to be invited back in to say hello.

It genuinely seems like such a lovely school- friendly teachers, the students representing the very best of the city: diverse, full of talent and singing their little hearts out.

Happy birthday to the Central Model School and a massive thank you for all they’ve done/ are doing for the Inner City. @ Dublin, Ireland

‪Make no mistake about it, this is Fine Gael’s Ireland. We have children eating from boxes on the street but our government will advocate tax cuts in order to keep power. ‬

‪They’ll likely be back in power too because because because. That’s the part that really tears at the gut.. ‬

This government has done so much damage in every sector god only know how many years it will take to fix it

It really strikes a cord because the character of Dublin has changed to accommodate the rich. Too many hotels and generic international branded shops. That poor little boy eating off the ground while more 3000 a month apartments are built just sums up the situation.

Because the same gobshites will vote them back in 😡😡

It's so wrong no wonder mental health services are at breaking point. I never thought I'd live to see such a divide in our country.

Fine Gael are ruining this country and the lives of ordinary (not the rich) people. They've normalised families in homelessness but IT'S NOT NORMAL or acceptable 😤

As best I can I’ve been attempting to keep the old Magdalene Laundry on Sean McDermott St on the councils radar.

This month I was able to discover a couple of interesting developments: let me know what you think.

I think I'm angry and also completely unsurprised that they have no plans for a memorial. I think a good use for the Chapel at least would be for a woman's history 'museum'

Thanks Gary I was on the truth and justice march last year you have to keep at dcc it's the only way we can't have it turned into something " for profit" it would be disgusting.

It's the only Magdalene laundry belong to the council not really rightful owners are survivers of church and state Magdalene's industrial institutions and mother and baby homes we have the say survivers I and Catherine coffee haven't stopped with the fight for Sean Mac Dermott street keeping and eye never giving up on the property our collective memory our museum and other facilities best needed

Like saying “look the sky is blue”!

‪The proposal for O’Devaney Gardens has been deferred for a month following an intervention from the Minister a short time ago.
