Credit where it's due.  We switched to the City Bin Co for refuse collection sometime last year.  They've been excellent so far - never missed a collection, they text the night before a collection to remind you which bins are being done, and they're much cheaper than their rivals.

Now they've started sending out a monthly "bindex" - how much of each type of refuse was collected, and how your house compares to the average.  Print it out, stick it on the fridge, and there's an incentive for the kids to beat the neighbours...

The stats are a nice touch.. Areas still seem limited though.

Sean Kelly is the only Irish MEP who sits on the committee that will vote on TTIP next Monday. He knows most Irish people are against this awful trade deal but still wants it to go ahead. Sign this urgent petition to force him to reconsider his support for secret corporate courts.

Am I a Glasshole? Or are you a self-absorbed, irrational luddite?

Here's my open letter to people who oppose the wearing of Google Glass in public: http://goo.gl/CdYKDj

Yes, his tone is abrasive, but that aside I think he makes some valid points - essentially boiling down to "OMG, you've got Google Glass, you could be filming me RIGHT NOW!" "Yes, I could be, but I'm not, because why would I, but now that you're making a scene, I'm sure the security guard monitoring the CCTV is zooming in on you..."

This looks excellent - "Secret Dublin: An Unusual Guide".  Will pick it up when I'm next in town.  Seems exactly like what +Field Trip does, just in print form.

An excellent brewpub with decent, tasty food. The pub is owned and run by the Galway Bay Brewery which means you can always get really good beer from them and many other craft breweries. (Galway Bay's "Of Foam and Fury" Double IPA won "Best Beer in Ireland 2013", as voted for by members of Beoir). Tends to get very busy in the evenings due to its close proximity to the IFSC. The only thing I don't like about the place is the acoustics - sound seems to bounce off the walls and when it's full and noisy it can be hard to have a conversation, but there's no music to compete with, either.

Really confusing/absent signage for finding the route to return rental cars. Manage that, and you need to find a luggage trolley. Wheel your trolley all the way to Terminal 2 for Ryanair, only to find that for no reason that was ever explained (we did ask and just got Gallic shrugs!), you can't bring your luggage trolley inside the terminal building. Struggle with your luggage and carry-on bag to the Ryanair check-in desk, and you then have to take back the luggage you just checked in, and bring it *yourself* across the width of the terminal building and around a corner, to where some security (?) people will take it from you and load it onto a conveyor. (In the meantime, I suppose, you could load stuff from you carry-on bags into your luggage, if Ryanair had previously said your luggage was too heavy and you'd unloaded... Didn't test this, but they're hardly going to run after you to stop you doing it seeing as they're always short-staffed and busy...) Beyond security, there's an underwhelming and expensive duty-free with not too much choice on offer.

Was there for a family birthday dinner. We'd booked an "early-bird" sitting for 6:15 and were told we'd need to vacate by 8:30, which was fair enough on a busy Friday evening. Service was very efficient and friendly. Food was quite good - the seafood chowder was especially delicious, but being on Howth's west pier I imagine the ingredients are extremely fresh :-) My main - the slow roast pork belly - was a little salty but still delicious. Only complaint is that they only do wine - no beer available.

We decided to try here having read the reviews on Google. Arrived without a booking, which turned out to be a mistake as they were full, but they managed to fit us in. Delicious food, with friendly service, in an interesting and beautiful setting. Highly recommended. Nicest restaurant we found between Vias and Portiragnes.

Drink: A decent range of Irish craft beers - Metalman, O'Hara's, Galway Hooker - on draught, as well as "traditional Irish" Diageo drinks like Guinness and Carlsberg. Food: Toasties served all day! Atmosphere: Good, friendly service from George and an eclectic mix of music from manager Tadhgh, at just the right volume to be heard without interfering with conversation.

Good, tasty, well-presented food. They were very busy when we arrived so they moved us to the upstairs part, which is also a second-hand bookshop. Great view of Bull Island from upstairs. Very friendly service - they kept apologising for the length of time it was taking for our food (which wasn't all that long, really, and it was a bank holiday Monday) and despite our protestations that it was fine, they wouldn't charge for dessert or drinks. A bonus is it's run by/for a charity. Only quibble - no beer on the menu, only wine and soft drinks.
