‘on the pop’

It happened every time he went on the pop. At first it made him curious. Soon he became only afraid.
Writer Peter MacNamara has written a short story inspired by the Dublin phrase ‘on the pop’.

It’s a tale of one young man’s trials and tribulations as he cums to terms with his erection being inexplicably linked to a white pigeon.


Studio Yum Yum artists – Niamh Hannaford, Gavin Leane, Gearóid O’Dea and Darren O’Driscoll – have created a series of vibrant visual and transgressive art works. Mediums range from painting, sculpture, and photography to literary fiction and performance art in reaction to the story.
An exhibition exploring confessions, vulnerability and Dublin wit and it is a part of this year Dublin Fringe Festival.
