Howard Marks & John Sinclair & Propeller Palms "Radical Rogues on the Road".
Forum Waterford 31 May
After a sold-out show here in 2010, the living legend that is HOWARD MARKS (best-selling author, former international drug trafficker and all round roguish charmer) returns to The Forum on 31 May, this time bringing with him another hero of the counter-culture, JOHN SINCLAIR (American political activist, poet & former manager of MC5). Waterford "band of the moment" Propeller Palms will also be performing a live set as part of the show. The two veteran raconteurs will be teaming up to share their fascinating and, at times, truly incredible stories with each other as they delve into the haze of their era-shaping pasts. Howard (a vigorous advocate for the legalisation of recreational drugs) will be talking to John about his own lifelong activism and reflecting upon his part in founding the revolutionary White Panther Party, managing the MC5 and sparking the legendary 1971 "John Sinclair Freedom Rally". You'll see why it's not just anybody who could have inspired John Lennon to write a song about him! This unique opportunity to share the experiences of two outlaw icons who know what it means to stand up for what you believe in, will reveal just what life is like campaigning for social justice and speaking out against an oppressive establishment and the price at which that comes. Breathin' Air with Howard Marks and John Sinclair will be a trip you won't forget!

The Government has announced that it plans to give each child in the State a second year of free pre-school. It might not sound like earth shattering news but if it does happen then it could be one of the most significant things that this Government has done since it took office. Any money that is given over to education is a …
