Brendan Kerrigan of "The Pen Place" discusses reopening his business after the lockdown.
In this episode we talk to the owner of one of Dún Laoghaire's very unique small businesses - The Pen Place - at the top of the Dún Laoghaire shopping centre. Brendan Kerrigan runs a mecca for lovers of great pens and great inks in a tiny space sought out by everyone from rockstars to High Court judges. The business has survived the retail crisis that has affected the town - proving that great customer service, consistent high quality offerings and an owner with a passion for his work can overcome even a global pandemic. This podcast was recorded virtually via Zoom - Brendan on his Android phone and Aileen on her iPad attached to a Shure MV88 stereo microphone and a soundwall on her kitchen table, all done live on a BNI Forty Foot chapter meeting.

The Story of The Dalkey School Project
In the early 1970s, two families in Dalkey in south Dublin came together and with considerable vision, courage and energy, established Ireland's first multidenominational school, the Dalkey School Project.Now in 2019, as the Educate Together movement expands into post primary education and has become the ethos of choice for so many parents in Ireland, this radio documentary I made with the help of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland's Sound and Vision fund, tells the story of its origins. I'm working with Educate Together on a video story, and this documentary is a very useful archive of this wonderful story. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
