Suffering with new carbon taxes? Try an electric car for a change!
This video shows 2 models of recharging points that ESB has installed outside its HQ on Fitzwilliam St Lower. The plan is to have 1,500 setup nationwide by the end of 2011.
And where are the cars? Still in production I believe.

Video of the last unpoisoned eagle in Kerry (& a tour of Killarney town).
It is a weird town. Sort of like the 'Ireland of our imagination'. Yes, it is nice, clean and prosperous - but is it really a typical Irish town?
As I explain in nasal tones during the video, to my mind it is a totem. Similar to Kinsale, Dingle or Westport - it is how we wish Irish towns were.
And that eagle? It's a statue. Hard to poison a statue.

Memorial for the Polish President on Grafton St. Dublin.
This memorial was erected by members of the Polish community in Ireland soon after the tragedy in Russia. Many flowers and other messages have been left there.
Soon after I stopped recording the 2 children shown blessed themselves and said a short prayer at the memorial.

My advice is ... take in your washing.
Yes, I'm kidding ;)
Spelunking over the Easter weekend - Caving in Kesh, Co.Sligo.
Over the Easter hols, myself and a buddy went north-west to go caving.
Initially we started off in the Boho caves in Fermanagh - but unfortunately they were flooded. After that we drove to Kesh in Sligo. The caves there are much less extensive, but are fun and have great views.
There are loads of myths and legends about the caves - which are probably a bit lost on the local kids who obviously use them for parties (judging by the rubbish we collected).
But I guess I would have been the same as a teenager.
Puppets & Music: Video of Grafton Street's brilliant buskers.
I wandered down the street of a recent sunny Saturday and recorded a few clips of the dozen or more buskers in action that day. From the incredible to the crap - all sorts were in action.
My favourite for some time has been the puppeteer. He is just stunning and hilarious.
More photos in our catalogue of "Features of the Irish Landscape."
I traveled through the Midlands over the Easter holiday and snapped a few more things that warrant representation in our "Features of the Irish Landscape" Flickr catalogue.
Mainly unpleasant elements I admit (ghost estates, rotting bungalows), but at least one redeeming feature, a beautiful example of an old rural graveyard in Co.Roscommon.
For a full description and explanation of each picture, visit the Features of the Irish Landscape Flickr page.
