Love Your Community - Nine Crows X Pieta House

Love Your Community - Nine Crows X Pieta House

Something we are very proud of at Nine Crows is that over the years we have grown from a brand into a community, one full of inspiring people who we care deeply about. We’re also aware that there are many of you within our community who are struggling everyday with mental health issues and devastatingly, we have lost several members to suicide. We've decided it's time to do something about it, to stop sweeping mental health under the rug and pretend it's not happening. We want to launch a campaign here on our blog where we address the issues our community is facing and try to help in any way we can. 

We've decided to launch the series this Valentine's Day, a day about celebrating those who you love. We want to show our love for you guys, from our staff to our models to our customers, everyone who makes up the Nine Crows community and help raise awareness for this huge issue which is affecting us. We want to remind everyone that love is all around us, it comes in all shapes and sizes from many different people and the importance of showing your love for your community and supporting each other.

We've decided to hold an in-store event in both our Dublin and Galway stores in aid of Pieta House this Valentine’s Day where we can all hang out together and show our love for each other while raising some much needed funds for a cause that has deeply affected our community. 20% of all sales on the day will be going to Pieta House and there will be donation buckets in store. Join us for some deadly tunes, super cute selfies at our selfie station and some FREE West Coast Cooler (from 5pm)! If you can’t make it on the day but still want to help out, you can donate to Pieta House at www.pieta.ie/donate

For more details about the event click here.

Keep an eye out for the online campaign launching soon.

Let’s come together and show our love for our community.

What To Do This Weekend

What To Do This Weekend

For those of you who missed out on Electric Picnic tickets, it's easy to feel major fomo when watching your friends snapchats and Instagrams from the festival, but there's still plenty of fun to be had this weekend in Dublin that doesn't include dancing in Stradbally.


Friday:

When a festival is happening, the usually packed pubs in Dublin tend to be slightly more empty, so take advantage of this and head into town where you'll have your pick. Head to P Macs where you can play some board games over drinks for a chilled Friday night or go to the Bernard Shaw where you can get a seat in the usually packed smoking area and not have to stand in a corner while you eat your pizza.

We love heading over to The Sugar Club for a film and a boogie and this Friday they're showing the Quentin Tarantino classic Pulp Fiction. The film starts at 8:30pm with an afterparty following at 11 and as always, you're encouraged to dress up as characters from the film. Grab your best Mia Wallace costume and head down for a night full of fun.

Start the weekend off on a good note with a bit of healthy exercise. Get up early, grab some mates and go for a stroll along the Howth Cliff path, we promise the views will be worth it! Grab some seaside fish and chips while you're there to help ease any hangover you may have from the night before.

If you're not in the mood for a walk but still want to get some exercise in, head to Dartmouth Square in Ranelagh for some Saturday morning yoga in the park. It starts at 11 and is the perfect way to destress after a busy week. 

If it’s food you’re in the mood of, head to the Temple Bar Food Market which is open on Saturday from 10am-4:30pm. This place is full of amazing food to make your mouth water and has an option for pretty much everyone, no matter what your dietary preferences are.

What's a Sunday without some brunch? There are so many amazing places to choose from for brunch in Dublin, with new spots seeming to pop up every weekend, but this weekend try out San Lorenzo's on George's Street. This place is usually one of the busiest brunch spots in Dublin but with half the county away at Electric Picnic, you can eat your Coco Pops French toast in peace. 

Head to the IMMA after brunch for some culture. The museum is open from 12pm to 5:30pm on Sundays and currently has several exhibitions running. Check out the Nan Goldin exhibition, Weekend Plans, featuring both unseen and iconic images by the renowned photographer. Goldin's work is personal and intriguing and this exhibition is definitely not one to be missed. 

Go for a theatre show with a twist with The Gate Theatre's production of The Great Gatsby. For this show, all chairs are removed to give you a completely immersive experience so expect cocktails, dancing and plenty of 1920s inspired outfits. Tickets start from €28 and the Sunday performance starts at 4pm.

Whatever you choose to do, enjoy your weekend and if you're in the mood for a bit of shopping, pop into us on Temple Lane South Dublin or Cross Street Galway.
