Sketches from Sunday, June 13th 2021, - the Yard Sale @ South Circular Road, Dublin 8.

Great outing last Sunday - the focus was the residents' yard sale in the Dublin 8 area of Donore Avenue and South Circular Road - they are fighting against a huge development on the site of the Player Wills factory - 19 stories high! It was lovely to explore the neighbourhood, document the Yard Sale, and chat with the residents!
Information about the residents' actions against the development can be found on this link.

Sunday 13th June - Yard Sale @ South Circular Road, Dublin 8

 On Sunday the Sunday 13th June Dublin Sketchers will be sketching a massive yard sale! We will be heading to the South Circular Road,  Dublin 8 to sketch Dublin's biggest yard sale! As you walk along the street you'll see many people selling items, so this is an opportunity to sketch people or houses

Player Wills Factory(it's covered up at the moment so will look different)

South Circular road where the yard sales should be taking place

We will meet at Noshington for a coffee and share our sketches outdoors in a social distance manner. 


If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.


Here's a news article about the event: https://dublinpeople.com/news/dublin/articles/2021/06/09/d8-residents-host-dublin-yard-sale-sunday-june-13-31507/


From 4pm, we'll gather for a drink at Noshington further down from the Player Wills factory(head towards Leonard's corner. A bunch of sketchers will magically appear.


Challenge for sketchers: Sketch a person buying an item at a yard sale
