Tomás Mulligan is our guest for episode 105 of Rebel Matters. We discussed the supposed ‘development’ that was planned for the Cobblestone Bar last year, an institution of traditional music and a cultural hub in Dublin city. Tomás shares his family long standing and deep connection with the Cobblestone, talks about how they found out about the proposed plan, and how the protests took hold that ultimately saved the Cobblestones from being the latest casualty what seems to be a sustained attack on cultural spaces in Dublin city. An important listen for anyone interested in organising collective action to protect cultural and communal spaces, and for anyone who is interested in preserving the spaces that that allow our music, art, and culture to flourish.
