Well another long day yesterday ...packed the van with 30ft snake in kit form and left home just before 6am to reach Dublin in time for an early visit from RTE news team at Francis St CBS. Kids were sooooo excited to showcase their work and spoke really well.. I got a few words in too so all good. Then a long afternoon spent in St Patrick's Cathedral majestic space assembling the single use plastic monster that we have been working on for the past 3 months. And it worked!!!! Thanks to the the children of D8 for their enthusiasm, Marc Rome (patience and amazing building skills), Kelley Bermingham and team at St Patricks's, Eoghan Desmond (plastic song composer ) and Eddie McGuinness ( talented choreographer) . Performance is tonight at 6.45 in the cathedral FREE tickets must be downloaded from their site in advance .... If yews in Dublin please do drop in and hear the voice of Dublin's youth screaming NO to having their (government provided) school luches food wrapped in single use plastic.
