The Growdome Project

@ VOL 9 ON SEP 24, 2015

Niall O'Brien shares the Grow Dome Project , which aims to empower communities sustainably and socially. Dublin's first geodesic grow dome in the heart of Dublin 8 is an intensive all-year-round sustainable food production tool, an arts and music exhibition space, a community meeting and education area, and an iconic artwork in its own right – all at the same time. Our prototype is nearing completion and the plan is to build 40 domes in the next 5 years.

What is Irish Food?

@ VOL 9 ON SEP 24, 2015

Formed in 2014 by Cúán Greene and Harry Colley, Dublin Pop Up is an innovative and exciting fine dining events company which has shaken up the Dublin dining scene. Their food, which is hosted in a number of unconventional spaces such as galleries, defunct delis and donated spaces around Ireland’s capital city, has garnered the attention of food writers, brands and fans alike. The two cooks have put their own spin on contemporary Irish cuisine, incorporating influences from indigenous ingredients and European design.
