Seomra Spraoi

Seomra Spraoi is Dublin’s very own radical social centre… Today in Ireland there is virtually nowhere indoors for people to congregate that isn’t a pub or overpriced cafe. There are many successful autonomous social centres in other European cities, independent of local authority, church, business or other controlling body. These spaces have provided a focal point for many of the social movements in the West, where public spaces have been eaten away by consumerism, property speculation and the culture of the car.

The new (fourth generation) space has been open for a couple of months now and actually just had a very busy and successful launch weekend. The space facilitates a mad range of
activities, from film screenings to regular workshops on every possible topic (including bike repair, stencil and graffiti, electronic music production, permaculture, gardening, legal support, activist skill sharing to name just a few), political meetings to cross dressing parties, acoustic gigs and a truckload of other interesting stuff — more info at and
