As with a raft of other gigs and events, Horslips, postponed from March 17th has now been rescheduled for Sunday 15th of November. Fingers crossed all goes well. Now that’s shaping up to be a busy month musically. Here’s Ticketmaster’s list of events that have been cancelled and rescheduled. Some of the rescheduled ones look […]A

For those of us who remember the 1970s all too well this special of Action comic, including the ‘banned’ issue from October 1976 has perhaps been released at precisely the wrong time. Or thinking about it perhaps it’s the opposite. What better time for a comic like this? Launched in 1976 by writer and editor […]A

The world has, I think it’s fair to say, taken a Ballardian turn this last three months. So what better music to soundtrack this than that of Joy Division (and in a way New Order) whose output and lyrical concerns always spoke to isolation (quite literally as noted by IEL last weekend) and alienation and, […]A

Never more necessary than now, as Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently: I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we?re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans […]A

The Regional Independent Group comprising nine non-aligned TDs has emerged as the most likely target for Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael as partners in coalition. Well there’s a surprise. Some interesting votes in the Dáil yesterday too, as noted in comments. But: Fianna Fáil has 37 TDs in the 33rd Dáil, while Fine Gael has […]A

Slate.com has a piece on how traffic tailbacks… …represent an existential threat to the European Union. Amid a global pandemic, there are few Europeans to be found.

You can read highlights on RTÉ here. A lot of areas covered already, the importance of retail and cleaning workers as well as health workers in this process. The need to protect all of them.
