Today is our third birthday as a blog. While cheebah.net was going for about 5-6 years before 2005, it was only then that we made the switch to blog format. We can't say that we have been as industrious as others who celebrated birthdays this month but we are getting better. Thanks to all those who return regularly, contribute, read and comment. We have a few things in mind to push the site on a bit in the next few months but nothing too radical. In the meantime, three pieces from the earlier days which some of our newer readers mightn't be familiar with.
- Sin é an reggae: A brief overview of some of the strands interlinking irish culture with reggae history. The celebrated recording that accompanies the piece (recorded by TWOC who plays at the next roots factory in bakers) is still very popular and intriguingly almost 90% of recent requesters are from China.
- Brian Cross: Two interviews , one by Frank O Connell and the other by Johann Doobay to whet your appetite in anticipation of May bank holiday weekend.
- Dock Road Projects: Piece on dock road apartments, still relevant today. No doubt very popular with estate agents as searching "dock road apartments Limerick" brings it in at no. 1 on google.
