Tapas at McKenna's


  • Twenty-five people turned up, twelve were newcomers
  • Including one Dun Laoghaire Rathdown councillor
  • Some had to leave early and a few came late, which is fine
  • Average age – coming down
  • One woman student. (more students next time – DLR councillor will help… Thanks!)
  • Re Opps: opportunity offered to do some marketing for the Glencree Youth Centre project, and a student photographer was offered the chance to attend the Press Launch of The Famine Walk
  • Person from Ballybrack won the Draw for the TAM (Tapas at McKenna’s) Prize of two free Pizzas at the local Milano Restaurant. Milano’s have agreed to extend the prize for another four weeks!

There were two RANTS:

  2. Queue-jumpers!

There were two PROMOS:

  1. Dun Laoghaire Enterprise Centre (Photographer Mark Boland of Silver Image Photography explained how it works for his business)
  2. DESIGNING DUBLIN ‘Love the City’ project – group of young professionals developing new ideas aimed at making Dublin City centre more attractive, eg ‘Anti-squatting’, ‘Dublin’s 1000 Secret Places’
