Big thanks to Greg Stevenson on Facebook and Under The Thatch on Twitter for flagging up this stunning 1930s six-bedroom art deco property in Templeogue Road, Dublin. But it does come with a good amount of notoriety.
The house was built in 1939, but gained that notoriety in 1940 when the house was owned by a 'go-between' between the IRA and the German Nazi regime. Indeed, it was used as a safe house for an SS officer – and when it was raided by the police, the owner was arrested and sentenced to five years in prison. The SS man had already departed. You can read the full story from the Irish Times here.
After the chaos of the Adidas Manchester launch, Size? has obviously taken note and has a new way of distributing its latest Adidas limited edition reissue – the Adidas Dublin trainers and tracktop.
Like the Manchester, the Dublin is another reissue of the city range in very limited numbers – just 300 of the jacket and 500 of the trainers, both in an eyecatching blue and orange colourway with gum sole, numbered detailing and gold city branding.
if you want to secure them, get to your nearest Size? store as early as you can on June 19th. If that's not possible, Size? is doing a ballot for online sales. Sign up and if you get drawn, you'll be offered the chance to buy both items via Paypal. You've got until 9am on 16th June to get in that particular draw.
