All craft beer fans! Get ready for your prayers to be answered because there's a new pub opening in Dun Laoghaire that's going to get your tastebuds tingling.

Beer Traders is getting set for its opening on Wednesday, where beer fans can indulge in a serious collection that the pub will have to offer.

The lads and lassies are getting ready for the opening at 3pm on Wednesday, February 24, and suddenly, we're mighty thirsty.



It is a very good day for the locals of the town of Longford because they have just been bestowed with the title of Ireland's tidiest town for the year of 2015. 

Snatching the crown from the reigning champs, Kilkenny, the central Irish town won the title closely followed by Dublin's coastal town of Dun Laoghaire. 

The winner was announced at a ceremony in Dublin on Monday which was organised by the Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL)

The shortlist for the win included Dungarvan, Dun Laoighaire, Drogheda and Kilkenny but all were pipped to the post by Longford. 

Reviewers of the town noted that Longford's public spaces were: "not just clear of litter, but many were also superbly presented and maintained."

In recognition of their achievement, IBAL will commission a prominent artist to design a public sculpture to be proudly displayed in the town. 

And even if your town did not make cut, there were no areas in Ireland that IBAL deemed as "black spots" for litter. 

Phew! Because that could have been embarrassing. 



Irish folk are famed for a great many great things – although whether dancing is one of them is somewhat questionable.

A wedding, on a night out, or attending a festival; the moves on offer on homesoil are less Rio Carnival, and more Roscrea carousal.

Not that we mind – because unchoreographed craic is part of what makes the country great.

However, just every so often, it’s nice to turn our hands to something a little different – namely a spot of Brazilian-inspired samba.

Last month, talented Irish-Brazilian bossa band Nova Collective hit Dun Laoghaire pier to record a video for their new single, Samba De Amor. And with the help of director Tom Speers they managed to rope in some unsuspecting locals too.

"Our concept with this one was very simple: can Irish people dance like a Brazilian?" the band said afterwards. 

Well, suffice to say we're totally in love with the results.

For those not yet in the know, Nova Collective is led by outstanding pianist Louis Ryan, and boasts a lineup of exceptional jazz, traditional Irish, classical and Latin musicians. 

Their live shows often involve more than music (spectators are always in for a treat) and they're poised to play the Sugar Club on Sunday, August 16.
