Made in Ireland is a series by Stint Ireland highlighting the best Ireland has to offer, whether it’s an exciting new Irish business you should know about, an individual with ambitions of changing the world, or an organization that hopes to transform the way people interact by running socially-responsible cultural events in public spaces at a low cost to the event-goers and the environment. In this episode, we interview Peter O’Brien, founder of an organization called Happenings that does just that.
This episode of Made in Ireland was released in conjunction with week two of our “I Dream of Ireland” campaign, celebrating the amazing country of Ireland!
We present to you the first contest of our “I Dream of Ireland” campaign.

After the colorful performance of the Guerilla Aerialists, a group of performers reminiscent of old school travelling troupes, the crowd, gathered behind the manor house, dispersed. But in the distance, on the far side of the house, music waxed from the “The Cosmic Caravan,” a remix of Talking Head’s “This Must Be The Place,” drawing the people together, instilling a bout of fever.
With the sun shining, brightly, but slowly waning, giving way to dusk, the festival-goers, some masked with vibrant facepaint, others in elaborate dress, became entranced by the beat.
And so they danced.
