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

Raheny is my home area; the poor sequence change on that traffic island is a relatively recent phenomenon > @pmonahanjr7 #tweet


Seriously, though, what’s the necessity for an Oxford comma if there’s no ambiguity for it to clear up? > @guardian #tweet


OK, with Unyielding Love on the bill I’m really gonna try and make the Dublin show now > @dmepromotions #tweet


I’m a big fan of WWE doing the #RoyalRumble in baseball parks, with the smaller dugout entrance set. Hope it’s more than just a two-year thing > @MacDara #tweet


Just saw two robins having a style battle on a neighbour’s wall #tweet


Justice Pain main evented the first indie show I ever attended, IWW’s debut matinee in Tallaght > @combatzone #tweet


Had to root around for change for the customs charge (which is the final insult) but I finally have this, five weeks after it was posted from the States > @MacDara #tweet


Funny story here: on Monday I filed a missing item report with An Post and queried the retailer again. Later that day, after weeks in limbo, the parcel magically reappeared on tracking > @MacDara #tweet


Much delayed new episode of Enlarged Heart Radio is now sequenced; just needs a few links and it’ll be ready to go. Keep and eye/ear out for it tomorrow #tweet


Spinning my wheels against some IT issues this morning so I think I’ll go for a walk #tweet


So… it turns out ‘refund protection’ is kind of a scam? Anyway, if Jawbox’s Electric Ballroom gig sells out I’ll have a ticket to flog online > @MacDara #tweet


Listening to the new Raspberry Bulbs (it’s out next month) and wondering why so few bands (maybe only them?) have made black metal swing #tweet


My weather apps don’t agree but I feel like the temperature’s dropped a few degrees in the last hour or so #tweet


Enjoyed the Freud/Yeats show at IMMA today before it closed, fourth time lucky! It reinforced how much I love Jack B Yeats’ work, and why I don’t particularly care for Lucian Freud > @MacDara #tweet


I’ve done that thing where I put something in a ‘safe place’ and now I cannot remember where that place is #tweet


That’s some frost out there this morning #tweet


Saturday Night’s Main Event, January ‘86: Hogan wearing blue trunks and busting out the Axe Bomber like he’s working for Inoki #tweet


Watching this four-way main event from last week’s NXT and Keith Lee is the only guy I connect with, he’s the only one of this group who’s got IT #tweet


The big secret they don’t want to tell you about delivery drivers blocking footpaths, cycle lanes, etc is that no provision was ever made for them to park anywhere else. On foot? On a bike? The man doesn’t care #tweet


STILL waiting for mine to show up, it’s been weeks now. Parcels from the US to Ireland just don’t take that long > @RingsideC #tweet


There’s so much that deadens the soul about the chain of events on Wilton Terrace yesterday, but the one that really gets me is, why wouldn’t you check the tent first? What brings someone to that place? > @MacDara #tweet


I was only listening to this album earlier today. Let’s see how much the shipping costs… > @Bandcamp #tweet


They could’ve waited till after the register deadline; it’s a calculatedly crooked move IMO #GE2020 #tweet


My name is MacDara, it’s Irish – yet Irish people seem to have the hardest time accepting it’s my first name, not my surname > @MarcusCVance #tweet


Watching this week’s NXT and Bee finally cracked it: Damien Priest is the wrestling Lenny Kravitz #tweet


Good job I wasn’t planning to go to that Body Void gig tonight as they only get on stage when my last bus home is leaving #tweet


Ticket sorted for Jawbox at Whelan’s. Who else is going? #tweet


Man, I should’ve pitched this one! That Unwound box set is one of my better purchases. What a band > @Bandcamp #tweet


Paging @electricalsband (and looks like I’m getting a refund on my London ticket) > @jawboxofficial #tweet


Mixer (or its power supply, or both) still very much dead. Refund on the way, and support ticket lodged with the manufacturer so let’s see how that goes… > @MacDara #tweet


Ordered new shoes that should’ve been here by now. Just checked the tracking and it says ‘Unable to deliver - Not In’ at 8.10am this morning, when I was very much awake and would’ve heard a knock on the door @Postvox #tweet


Anyone I know have a Behringer Xenyx Q802 mixer? Mine appears to have died literally a minute after plugging it in. Troubleshooting tips would be appreciated #tweet


Finally set up my new turntable that arrived before Xmas. First play is Slovenly’s Thinking of Empire; some pop and crackle but nothing a better clean can’t fix #tweet


The best part about working (and while ill) over Xmas is finally getting some time off to enjoy while everyone else is back in their offices #tweet


No one’s GIFed the Tanahashi grin WTF?! #njwk14 #tweet


I’m sorry for Renee, but Minoru Suzuki is fixing to murder her husband #njwk14 #tweet


My stream was down for a few minutes like everyone else but it’s been back up since Liger walked out #njwk14 #tweet


It’s the end of the Liger era and I’m not ready #njwk14 #tweet


OK, I’m pleased for LIJ, but what am I going to do for the next 25 minutes that doesn’t involve me falling back asleep? #njwk14 #tweet


5am is far too early for a Bad Luck Fale match. And Taichi didn’t even bring Miho Abe with him #njwk14 #tweet


I’ve been enjoying this box of Japanese snacks Bee got me for Xmas. Mochitaro 👍🏻 #tweet
