The Darce

Called into the opening of the Quicksilver store in Stephen’s Green shopping centre last week. While admiring the colourful surf-y clothes and wondering how cold the bikini-clad hula girls and boys were, we spied none other than the Irish rugby team’s injured inside centre, Gordon Darcy, giggling as an illusionist performed some card tricks. He seemed completely oblivious to the not-very-discreet ogling that every red-blooded female in the place was doing.

I guess at some stage you must get used to those sidelong glances – you know the ones, we Irish are particularly good at them: When presented with a famous or kind-of famous person, we’re way too cool to outright stare, take out camera phones and ask them to autograph our boobs; Instead, we kind of shuffle around, looking nonchalant and shooting quick peeks over when we think they can’t see us.

I turned into a bit of a paparazzo and took a few shots, mainly to show to Eoghan, who had decided not to come (stinger).

There are a couple more on Flickr.

Afterwards, we headed to the Market Bar and had way too many of these:

Mmm…. patatas bravas…




    I want that dinner!

    I was at the Quiksilver launch too, wish I’d known who you were and I’d have said hello…we were standing right by the baby runners you snapped!
    Some really nice snaps you took there, can’t get over the clarity of the dark-haired model!
