Ha. I got the exact same response from Adrian Boot when I messaged himHill 16 pub in Dublin
This is a bit of an abstract post, relative to our usual content – but I thought it worth writing. It started innocently enough in the depths of COVID lockdown. Pintman №2 gets a text in one of his WhatsApp groupswww.dublinbypub.ie
Photography: Adrian Boot, the article reads, in capital font – we type it into google and find a link to his Facebook page – not a business page. His personal profile. I hover over the Add Friend button for a moment. Fuck it, I think. I’ve come this far. To my surprise, the man who stood in this very pub and snapped this very picture adds me back almost immediately.
Instantly, I set about posting to his profile. I craft a graceful and complimentary paragraph to accompany the photo and ultimately ask him if he remembers the location. Moments that feel like eternities pass and a notification pops up. He has replied. I wait for it to load.
Fuck ye in anyways, Adrian!“haven’t got a clue”
