Why The Bernard Shaw closing matters to Dublin (Podcast)


Episode 61 of the Nialler9 podcast is chiefly concerned with the closure of The Bernard Shaw and the constant closure of Dublin’s cultural spots over the last few years, that includes Hangar, District 8 and the constant shuttering of creative spaces that don’t fit the mould of the city’s growing servicing of hotels, offices and tourism.

(Related: our podcast special about Dublin’s Nightlife Economy).

Andrea and Niall, are joined by Louise Bruton aka Luberachi, arts and culture freelance journalist, wheelchair user, DJ with Pure Shores and Fringe Festival enthusiast.

There’s also our regular album and songs of the week chat and more.
