Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Someone's done for black metal what I tried to do for grindcore over at Bandcamp Daily https://t.co/lT2BwFH0dm #tweet


Yes, MacDara is my first name... Patron saint of Connemara fishermen... No? Sigh... https://t.co/Fq0uWPWt9a #tweet


Ah, finally got a promo for the new Bosse-de-Nage. I know what I’m listening to tomorrow #tweet


Took the plunge and downloaded TEW 2016. Now, how do I mod it with current real world data? #tweet


Hey now, Traps PS have a new album and it’s pretty feckin’ good from the first few tracks I’ve heard https://t.co/ScEFFjDOcp #tweet


If you’re looking for a fun, quick and cheap two-player deckbuilder, Star Realms comes highly recommended by us #tweet


Getting pretty annoyed by all these ‘Look how many we’re bringing to the Pope!’ Dublin Bus tweets when not even three days ago, a scheduled bus I needed to catch just disappeared https://t.co/apDlEvcc6l #tweet


There’s my tickets booked to see Los Ingobernables de Japon in Dublin, yeah #tweet


Anyway, it’s a national shame that our capital is shutting down for the whims of the profoundly abusive Catholic Church. But we have a bad habit of not rocking the boat en masse about these things https://t.co/FZz5Orn8GH #tweet


I’ve only seen one article mention Dublin retailers’ concerns over this weekend’s shenanigans. Remember that the next time they moan about any measures to cut city car traffic https://t.co/9FYJIrKB5B #tweet


Waiting for my Yoshi Kwan Network collection #tweet


Haven’t been #SummerSlam tweeting as you can tell but it’s been a decent show; some stuff I haven’t cared for but nothing to upset me #tweet


Surely I can’t be the only one thinking Shinya Hashimoto with Shinsuke’s ring gear choice tonight #tweet


Yet again I’m missing Unyielding Love (and Full of Hell, of course). But at least I won’t have to put up with the Fleadh crowd homewards #tweet


TakeOver was good. Fatigued after a long day so may rewatch some matches in isolation; Gargano/Ciampa should’ve been a cage match but War Games is next so https://t.co/l5rQYgs8yh #tweet


Smoothie for breakfast: almond milk, frozen banana and cherries, tsp of Horlicks, sweetener. It’s pretty good #tweet


Stuck on the bus with a Fleadh crowd. Shoot me now, I’m done #tweet


Got to see KUSHIDA wrestle which was great. But OTT still need to fix their show times. Intermission after 2.5 hours? I’m on the way home already https://t.co/FSUOZHPnck #tweet


On the road to see KUSHIDA at the wrestling. Hopefully it’s wrapped up before 10 so I can get home in time for TakeOver #tweet


I’m going to see Full of Hell on Sunday night which means missing the first half of SummerSlam. You don’t know my pain… #tweet


Reminder to myself to never again buy GreenSax brown bin liners; these ones all ripped right down the seam, completely useless #tweet


The Hart Foundation were the greatest tag team. It wasn’t just ‘Bret and the other guy’; the Hitman needed the Anvil #tweet


I watched the first two and the last three nights of this year’s G1 Climax and I think that’ll do me #tweet


Feeling like someone turned down the volume and bass in my ears this weekend #tweet


I hope everyone realises Jack won’t do a tap till investors pull out of Twitter #tweet


When I get an email with a typo: no biggie, these things happen. When I send an email with a typo: OH NO WHAT HAVE I DONE??!! #tweet


This is a really fun movie, as well as the root for the art style of The Tale of the Princess Kaguya https://t.co/qZIQ76d2ph #tweet


Renee was quite good the few times she did commentary for NXT; almost a heelish edge to her? If she wants it, they should give her the opportunity https://t.co/MH3Q3XSwLV #tweet


Still feel blerg with this cold so no new Enlarged Heart Radio till next weekend, if you were waiting on it #tweet


A new Picard series is great and all, but when do we get the new adventures of Barclay? #tweet


I’m no Cornette-esque curmudgeon but this ladder match is just a string of high spots, blah #WOSWrestling #tweet


The description of the Jolly Green Giant herein made me laugh out loud (on my own, like, so it wasn't embarrassing or anything) https://t.co/cJFS4e2Kmz #tweet


The Jungle Book at the Grand in Fairview, probably 1985. I remember being annoyed at the other kids being so noisy https://t.co/F2QtZsCVAZ #tweet


Under the weather so taking the rest of the day off. Let’s see what Netflix has in store for me #tweet


Train home isn’t an Enterprise either. Bit much, like #tweet


Would you not also care to mention it’s now a commuter train, not an Enterprise? More than a mere capacity issue https://t.co/BOdrLoqkgf #tweet


So much for pre-booking my ‘Enterprise’ ticket when they’ve stuck us on a commuter train #tweet


Damn it, my flight home is delayed. I won’t get home till after 1.30am now. And I’m supposed to be up at half 7 #tweet


Delighted to find my Oyster card still had £2.50 on it #tweet


Whoops, someone at the NUJ Dublin Branch forgot the BCC field #tweet


Got up early to write and I’m already exhausted #tweet


RIP Nikolai Volkoff (Josip Peruzović), who had a crazy long career with the WWF/WWE. How many else survived well into the expansion era? #tweet


Haven’t seen a Mission: Impossible movie since the second one, before my final shift at the Coolock UCI. Looks like I’ve got a new project #tweet


Twenty minutes in and this #WOSWrestling show is already a marked improvement on that New Year’s special #tweet


No rain up here, but no blood moon either; it’s far too cloudy #tweet
