  • "Many people passed through grangegorman and as a result many talents where shared on any random night. This time it was Spinobi fire-performers, photo taken by a good friend of mine, Milenka, from Brazil who I lived with for several years in a squat up the road. This warehouse was the largest of them all. In the far right corner, in an extended part of the warehouse sat paddy and paulís gaf. Later this is where Rob built a decent hut high in the rafters. I remember watching him raising timbers thirty feet in the air and then hoisting himself up a rope, clipping in to a safety rope and carrying on his building works. This warehouse sat directly behind the portacabin on which Christy and the gasbottle sit, and on-front of which happened storytelling night." David Ryan
