Meanwhile, residents living near the airport say revised flight paths from Dublin Airport’s new north runway, that came into effect yesterday, have made little to no difference for many living with unwanted fly-over noise. While the drones may not make as much noise as the planes, they are a serious safety risk, as IALPA's Evan Cullen explained to Bryan Dobson this week.
Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Lisa O'Neill's show as she launched her new album, All of This Is Chance, in Whelan's. The show exceeded all expectations and she is an artist that takes you somewhere else as she completely inhabits her delicate, defiant and beautiful songs about love, nature and death.
She played a few older tunes at the end of her set, including this one, inspired by the communities and people of Sheriff St and the impact of mechanisation on dock workers in the 50s and 60s. Rock the Machine is a statement of love and defiance, and resonates with the effort of the people of Ukraine one year into their fight.
