Dublin Man Gets Haircut
dublin | miscellaneous | news report Saturday July 29, 2006 22:20 by Shell to Sea - Dublin Shell to Sea dublinshelltosea at gmail dot com c/o 134 Phibsborough Road Dublin 7 0871323369
Sponsored haircut draws crowds, raises cash.
Environmental and political activist Eoin Ó Broin raised more than two thousand euro for the Rossport Solidarity Camp, by asking for sponsorship for the cutting off of his dreadlocks.
The big cut happened on Grafton Street in Dublin at 3PM, and although at first the crowds were bemused and a little uncertain about what was happening, within a short time they got the idea, and soon people were more than happy to get involved in the cutting.

Cool idea......i like your new hairstyle.....greeting from Poland
Well done Eoin, you were on the telly and everything! As usual, very effective and entertaining. See you soon big man!
great to see the photos....though i suppose i owe ya a tenner now,
seriously Eoin you look -at least we can see ya-much better without them dread......ful....locks..............
Jeez Eoin, brings back memories of Clondalkin scouts where on occasion at camp someone would have an eyebrow or a patch of hair shaved! Not that you were ever ever involved.
well done Eoin great to see that your still taken a stand
What a way to go :)
A good deed..... see ya this fall
yoooooooooooooooooo wasssuuuuppppppp hahahahhahahahha EOIN!!!!
I know that you feel sorry loosing the bet that England will take the WorldCup, but you shouldn't have cut your hair, I wold have let it go man, oh well ...
Fair play Eoin, there was a lot of growing in them, although better get them cut off for a good cause than let nature run its course and they fell off! Great idea getting the €5 for each one too.
He was later found to be a little "light headed" but well on the way to recovery in Grogan's public house in Dublin!
You now face regular haircuts are growing it all over again! (I shave my head every three years), and every time I lose the tresses I find myself patting the back of my neck unconsciously for a few weeks. I suppose Eoin is doing that - fiddling at the nape of his neck. Must be weird, there was a lot of years in those dreds. But an impressive way to make 2000eu and it seems meet girlies. ;-)
Fair play Eoin - Hope I recognise you next time your in Rossport ;)
Greets from the Netherlands/France!!
He's probably going to get people telling him he needs a haircut.
The last cut.
hair kept going off, money kept coming in- Eoin got down to one dread and we auctioned it...
Six years of growth, shorn over an hour or so...
How much could Shell raise if Andy Pyle offered to cut something off?
Fair play Eoin, from the expression on your face in that last photo it seems like it was a pretty traumatic experience! Hope you're not scarred for life. Seriously, thanks very much for doing it and thanks to everyone who donated. Eoin, you're a star. Oh and if you find you enjoy life as a skinhead, I can get some boots and braces for you!
