We had a great reaction to our inaugural A-List last week, so we’re back for Week 2, sharing our top tips on what to read, watch, see and do in Dublin, Belfast and beyond! This week, we’ve been:
- The election coverage, of course! Our top news sources included RTÉ’s constituency-specific Twitter accounts, The Irish Times’ results hub and post-election supplement, Gavin Reilly, Fiach Kelly, Carl Kinsella and Richard Chambers on Twitter – and we have to give a special mention to Claire McGing, for her work highlighting the gender balance (or shocking lack thereof!) in the new Dáil.
- The HBO series ‘Succession’.
- ‘This Ain’t No Disco’, an Irish alternative music programme.
- ‘Safe’ on Netflix.
- A screening of ‘Float Down the Liffey’ in the Sugar Club, accompanied by a live performance of the soundtrack.
- ‘What I (Don’t) Know About Autism’ at the Abbey Theatre.
- The Irish Times Books Podcast interview with Derry author Darran Anderson.
- ‘Pod Save the People’.
- An episode of ‘Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness’, where he speaks to finance expert Sallie Krawcheck about the gender wealth gap.
- The Bandwagons
- The Fry Model Railway Museum in Malahide.
- McNeill’s pub, our new Capel Street local (it only took us four years to get round to checking it out!).
Feeling inspired by:
- Completing a training course in Facilitation Skills with Meitheal (well done to Elaine Parsons, Darragh, Ciarán and Emma!).
And looking forward to:
- Eating in the Lucky Tortoise (Ciarán) and Gotham Café (Eimear);
- Having a relaxing and well-deserved break in the Cliff at Lyons (Ciara); and
- Getting stuck into prepping the raised beds, using coffee grounds from the Alice office in the compost (that would be Elaine Parsons in her lovely Wicklow garden!).
Have a lovely weekend, everyone! And HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY 😊
