How many have you released? There's a roughly 10% catch rate. And they can take quite some time! Years in some cases.

Lots! Can't remember the exact number. I have a load more to release at home...

Are they obviously labelled?

I think silja has had the most catches of people I know, but she wild released a lot, so I dunno if it's a knack, or just numbers. I think she said the luas stop at Stephen's Green has been good, and the board outside Bewleys.

Good luck!

Bewley's on Grafton St?

I've had a few in the IMMA, and a wall outside the Mespil Estate new Leeson St Bridge gave my highest proportion of catches to releases. I left them before 9, and people picked them up on the way to work where they had internet.

My first was in St Stephen's Green, but no others left there have been journalled. Perhaps sandwich boards generally are a good bet - I had a catch from one outside Forbidden Planet in London (a Buffy book, hoping to catch the eye of FB patrons).
