There are several reasons this place shouldn’t work. It’s an all-day cafe putting it out there seven days a week at the rackety end of Temple Bar. Sam Stephenson’s old Central Bank building tunnels a biting wind around its outdoor tables and much of the walk-by trade are toting rucksacks the size of small children in search of cheap, fast eats.
These bare bones days of January are no place for thin soup or a slurry smoothie. We can’t un-eat the past few weeks, but the last thing I need is a juice detox to bring it all limping to a headachy and lethargic slump. In truth I’ve no idea if lethargy or headaches are a thing with juice detoxes.
We are eating dinner on a “pretend farm”. This is the phrase a woman uses to describe Airfield as we share a long table in the Overends Restaurant. Disneyland with wellies and, tonight, a tasting menu. Airfield is a 38-acre estate in south Dublin set up as a charity in the 1970s to “facilitate active learning focusing on food, farming and the land”. Through their lives the Overend sisters, Letitia and Naomi, guarded their fields as the city pressed in on them.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
