    Based on the thing that happened to the guy when the guys did that thing at the place that isn’t a place anymore and they all went to the same place and were from the same social, you know, class?

    Or Who We Were.
    It happened 12 years ago.

      Who THEY, the privately educated hot headed rugby dicks with wealthy familys were and still are…. not WE.. I’d rather not be associated with murdering rule bending plonkers like that thank you very much Broadsheet.

    I don’t like all the posturing that goes with topics such as this. I can only assume based on previous experience that if anyone explicitly mentions the “source material” that the comment will be censored in a cowardly fashion.

    Any chance of a where are they now feature?

    I’d imagine it would be very interesting to see where those involved all ended up?

      A quick google search throws up one in England playing rugby in Kent, one was living in Dublin in 2004 (he got in trouble with the law for pissing in public in 2004), another is an accountant in BUPA and the last is a TCD lecturer in law. It’s so sad to think that that young man never got to grow up because of these shits!
