A recording of Conor McCabe Speaking at OccupyDameStreet that is Well worth a listen.
The blurb with the recording says

… it nevertheless produced this unexpected reappearance of the long gone street corner public speaking tradition. Speaking unaided and without notes, surrounded by the city’s sound and distraction, this man slowly won over a small crowd with nothing but self confidence and common sense. A welcome change from the usual bullhorn mediated harangues heard at Irish protest gatherings, whether or not the content is persuasive. He basically argues that the financial crisis in Ireland was foreshadowed and part of a long pattern of Irish economic (mis)behaviour. Mid-Side, unmastered.

What may perhaps be called the world-wide General Assembly movement, which has now arrived in Dublin and in Cork, may be viewed as a democratic attempt to reclaim public space from the neoliberal attacks of the last 30 years.
“The whole situation illustrates just how far we have allowed the ancient civic ideal of public space to drift from an arena of public expression and public assembly (Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park, say) to a commercial sop (the foyer of the Time Warner Center).”
