Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

If any of you were wondering where Christy Flood’s SciFi model shop, The Modeller’s Nook, which used to be in Berkeley Road in Phibsboro, had gone, you need wonder no more. After a hiatus of more that a year, Christy and his son Jason have opened a new shop on the corner of Crow Street and Cecilia Street, in the heart of Dublin’s Temple Bar area. The shop, now called Model Mania, is sharing the same space on the corner with Liam Webster’s secondhand comic shop, Story.
The shop stocks model kits and figures from the movies, comics, and TV, and also offers a model building service, along with hints and tips on doing it yourself. You can also catch up with them regularly at the Dublin Toy and Train Fair in the Clontarf Hotel. The next one of those is on Sunday the 18th September.
And, just to make it easier for site editor Ian to add the shop’s details to our existing list of Dublin SF shops, here’s the details in the approved format!
