Your Greystones Week


Some of GG’s more astute readers may have noticed already, but, we’re slowly emerging from lockdown, people…  

So we can hopefully kick Covid-19’s ass, self-isolation has long been the soup of the day – and that means our usually jam-packed Greystones calendar is looking very different today.

And with the restrictions now limiting us all to keeping within 5km of our homes, not sure there’s much point in checking out the beautiful trails out there. Then again, our guide does feature lots of shots, and video, if you want to go for a virtual walk.

Talking of lots of shots and videos, there’s also our extensive archives of vintage photographs, histories and interviews with the good, the bad and the incredibly smart to work your way through. Only took us eight years to put together, and we’re far from finished putting all the jigsaw pieces of Greystones’ colourful past together. You can map your journey right here.

And do think about your neighbours who are trying to keep their businesses alive during this difficult time – from shops and restaurants to theatres and beauty shops. Those who can have moved online – so, go join them there. You’ve certainly got the time.

We’ll be keeping an eye on how the town comes out of hibernation over the coming weeks, as the lockdown hopefully opens the door for normality once again. In the meantime, you can check out all the takeaways currently keeping us fed and watered right here.

If you need a little spiritual guidance, you can always go deep with Luisne, Kilcoole’s spirituality haven, right here.

We’ve also put together a list of local volunteers, free online classes, etc, right about here, and 10 Things To Do About Nothing To Do right here.

Also, check on any vulnerable neighbours. Pretend they’re your dad, or your mum. Only, they won’t keep reminding you of all your bad choices.

There are also a number of groups and individuals now ready and willing to help the elderly in our community. And you can join them. Speaking of which, the number for Alone, the charity helping the elderly living on their own, is 0818222024.

We’re also putting up music mixes regularly on GG, which might just help past the time, with a little singing, a little dancing, maybe even a miniature party or two

For the kids, there’s our annual Battle Of The Bands furry freak-out. Both come with big, groovy prizes too! Then again, maybe your kid would like to learn French or Spanish…?

And maybe you’re a poet, and you don’t even know it?! Check out the Poets Wall: My Place on Theatre Lane here for some inspiration.

You can keep up with what’s going on in regard to Covid-19 in the town right about here.

In the meantime, here’s a rather scaled down calendar. And do think twice about going anywhere that there may be a crowd. Or a queue…

Saturday 30th May

Day: 19°Hi RealFeel® 23° RealFeel Shade™ 18° Nice with partial sunshine
Night: 9°Lo RealFeel® 9° Patchy clouds

Today’s the day that steam train punk Nicky Cox has his golden locks chopped for his beloved Open Door – founded by his supergran, no less. So, go donate, right here, right now.

For their annual fundraiser this year MS Ireland have come up with the novel idea of a virtual balloon race. You can join in today’s silliness at just €5 a pop right here. Lift-off is 8.30pm

If you missed your free Greystones Bee Route Starter Pack last Saturday, Jodie and the Tidy Towns gang are back again today, in Charlesland this time, at 11.30am. Get there early!

For kids who like to have their books read to them, Greystones Library have joined with the other 30 book havens around Wicklow for a live readings. Nice. You can catch Clodagh Bourke, Catherine Costello and the gang’s readings on Facebook every Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday at 10.30am right here.

And if you feel like dancing in the streets, DJ Colm Donnelly is blasting the dancefloor fillers from outside his Greystones home every Saturday, from 5pm to 6pm – and given the copyright on those hits, you have to catch it live over on Facebook here. Let’s groove tonight!

Every Saturday at 10am, Anne Sexton Pilates are online for a General Mat Class  – info here.

There’s a whole world of free online out there right now – and given that we’ve all got a little spare time, to stop you going completely spare, we’ve rounded up some of the biggest and brightest right about here.

For the kids, there’s our annual Battle Of The Bands furry freak-out, plus Hub13’s all-genres art competition. Both come with buckets of fab-dabby-dooby prizes! Then again, maybe your kid would like to learn French or Spanish…?

There’s also the groovy Artzone, hosting art workshops for kids at noon on Tuesdays and Fridays over on Facebook. Plus, Joe Wicks is on YouTube to wake everyone up with some morning exercises, and Cosmic Kids Yoga to bring ’em back down, sensory activities and silly songs to be sung  here, National Geographic quizes here, Outdoor Bingo here, you can cook or bake yummy treats, listen to a story here, or go take a webcam tour of Dublin Zoo, San Diego Zoo, Victoria Zoo down under, or the Monterey Bay Aquarium

The whole family can also go birdwatching through your window with this handy chart.

Thanks to that bastard Covid-19, SuperValu will be giving over 7am t0 9am to the elderly who need to get their shopping done, whilst Lidl have chosen 9am to 11am. For those elderly who like a bit of a lie-in of a morning

And for those needing their daily God fix, the Holy Rosary are broadcasting their daily masses to the masses online right here.

Given that we’re still in Lockdown mode, best thing you can do right now is get yourself out into the wilds of Wicklow virtually. We have tons of pics and videos to trek through… 

If you are looking for something constructive to do with your time, there are plenty of volunteer groups popping up around the town and beyond to help the elderly and vulnerable. You can also, of course, go check on any old people living alone in your immediate circle…

With Greystones’ restaurant, bars and theatres closed because of Covid-19, many eateries are now turning to takeways as their lifeline. So, grab something yummy for your tummy, and help a neighbour out, right here.

Such as local heroes Chakra, who have their new takeaway menu available Wednesday to Saturday, 3.30pm to 8.30pm and 2pm to 8pm on Sundays. YOOM!

There’s also the beautiful gesture of a gift voucher, for the receiver and the giver – and, right now, the business itself.

Over at Lam’s Asian Cuisine, their Spicy Boxes are just €4 until tomorrow. YOOM!

In loving memory of the recently departed FourFront Games, you can check out the cunning gang of four’s Puzzle Map of the town, with 10 clues and 10 locations to work your way through. Sweet.
