Our friends at Rabble have made it to Issue 12, an enormous achievement for any publication. Given that Rabble remains free, it is all the more impressive. As ever, the latest issue is a mix of culture, politics, acting-the-bollocks and more besides.
Particular highlights include an interview with investigative journalist Gemma O’Doherty, a look at the recent documentary Atlantic,and a feature on how creative spaces have been priced out of Stoneybatter and Smithfield in recent times by the new rental realities.
I am still occupying Page 5 of each issue, named Fallon’s Old Time Fables (that wasn’t my doing). It has provided a find outlet to collaborate with my brother (an illustrator) in recent years. This edition features a look at historic tram strikes in the city, with particular emphasis on 1913, 1935 and the recent Luas dispute.
You can pick Rabble up right across the city in cafes, shops, pubs, bookshops and more besides.
