Open thread: What are your goals for 2016?
We took to the streets of Dublin city to find out if people have good intentions for 2016 – and if they’ve been sticking to them so far.

JANUARY IS BEHIND us, which means it’s time to take stock on how 2016 has gone so far.

How well did you stick to your New Year’s resolutions? Have they changed over the course of the month? Now that February is here, how are you set for the year?

As the rest of 2016 beckons, and the month of goal-setting and resolutions is soon to be behind us, we took to the streets of Dublin city centre to ask people what they’re looking forward to this year.

Between holidays, work and just calling the mammy more, Dubliners were all about trying to stick to their goals. Let’s take a look… Commercial / YouTube
