DJ-ing plug: if it’s the last Friday of the month (and payday), it’s time for Glider at the Workman’s Club, Dublin 2. Playing this, that and the other upstairs from 10pm and downstairs from 11.30pm will be Cillian McDonnell, Tanya Sweeney and myself plus special guest, the dashing (and very tall) 2fm megastar Dan Hegarty. Admission is free.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Best of luck to all the OTR readers running the Dublin Marathon on Monday.
