    Proud to say I was there and the sentiments from 12:57 onwards sums it up. Good people having good times

    Fair play to the ‘Life-Festival’ lads too- some great weekends down at Belvedere House over the past few years

    The first homelands was epic. Unreal atmosphere and positive vibes. Unfortunately the 2nd one was a bit of a knackerfest…

    all i remember is the really obvious cops in their dunnes jeans and school shoes “do you know where i could get some Es? my stash is running low” lol

    Homelands was amazing but it was rammed with knacks but to be honest I thought I was a mad thing meself at the time! Went off peacefully as I remember. Didn’t go to the 2nd one because evey local knack I knew was going. Wouldnt go near the likes now in my old age

  6. The Hizzle Stick

    Was in school in Skerries at the time; the two woodwork teachers went to that. Bit of a strange event for two oul lads to be going too. The lad with the flute hanging out is from the school too. Makes me so proud.

    I remember heading up to the bumper cars and everyone was driving around merrily avoiding each other, gurning and grinning. It was hilarious. Great buzz though – the cops, the tunes, the people – everything was harmonized. The power of mitzus.
