#RecreateYourCity: Cyclists pocket square Curitiba

May 22, 2015

A Civic Ecology project that has radically transformed the old city centre of the Southern Brazilian city of Curitiba.

In the old centre of Curitiba city there has been something very powerful happening over the last year… Citizens are starting to Re-imagine and Re-create the city. It has all happened in a tiny corner of an old street, a space less than 40 square meters, that was derelict and boarded up for 20 years, but now has gone through an amazing transformation. Not only has it changed this little corner, it has changed the street, in has changed the city, but most of all it has changed the public’s perception on how urban change happens. This is the story of Curitiba’s Cyclists pocket square, or the “Praça de bolso do ciclista“, as it is knows in Portuguese.

An Irish eco dude in Brazil

2014 was a great year, arriving to Brazil to start a new chapter in this fantastic adventure. There was much learned, some fantastic experiences, making new friends and making a new life… It was not all easy, but “Vale o pena”, it was worth the hassle / pain…

March 16, 2014

Hope YE all enjoyed the match yesterday…. A Perfect ending, this morning watching d vid clips from RTE, seeing BOD v emotional… A great n truly deserved send off to not just a sporting legend, but someone who comes across as just a really great guy.. Fair play to him, and on this weekend, feels great to be Irish…



Ireland are 2014 6 nations rugby champtions after beating France in a thrilling bloody battle in Paris yesterday.

Brian O’Driscoll, or BOD, or Drico, played his last game in the green jersey after 14 great years, the highest capped player in rugby history, 141 test matches – 133 for Ireland (83 as captain), and 8 for the British and Irish Lions.

– Its Paddys weekend, the days around the world when Irish, and anyone who is on for a good time, celebrate their existence and have a right old party, the win yesterday just added to it all.

– Last week Brian O’Driscoll played his last game in Ireland, he won man of the match due to setting up 3 tries, and he got a phenomenal send off… Something very special in Lansdowne / Aviva

– Apart from his game playing he has done lots to help charities and help out young Irish children, to offer support, to be a role model. Heres the HUGE thank you he got from the kids in Temple street hospital
