      Make it better. Mostly. The world is a very nasty place, and this little island of ours is one of the safest, cleanest, goodest countries out there…. Regardless of your bitterness towards is, i should add….

    kinda off topic ,
    I cringe at the irish way of promoting alcohol – foreign dignitaries having the Guinness etc…
    it’s very cringe worthy and give a silly impression of a country that offers so much.

    but keep it away from the nanny state also

      No.1 tourist attraction?
      Guinness Storehouse…

      Sure we’ve a lot going for us, but it’s also a vital marketing tool.

        As an Irish person living abroad, I find it kind of annoying when people come up to me and say “oh, Irish – bet you love to drink!!”

        We’re victims of our own success in our promotion of “da craic”.

      Nanny State…. Jesus Christ.

      They could bring in some minor laws that would reduce problematic drinking, and you cry about nanny state. Do you think the same about the NCT? Traffic Lights? Restrictions on advertisiing to children? The Smoking Ban? Seatbelts? Smoke alarms?

      Once you step foot on a path you are interacting with laws and regulations, yet people only think there is a nanny state when if becomes slightly less convenient to buy ethanol to drink. Morons.

        I would be the first to acknowledge Ireland’s problematic attitude to alcohol, but the fact that I can’t buy a bottle of wine or a few cans after 10pm in a shop, not enjoy a couple of pints on Good Friday, is BS.

        1. On The Buses

          So you openly acknowledge a national problem but still find that you can’t buy it passed 10 at night and none on good Friday an issue. Even though as long as you have the foresight to purchase earlier you could still consume as much as humanly possible during those hours.

          You may as well say ‘i know this stuff is a problem, but i don’t want anyone or anything to ever stop me from getting it for any reason at any time.’

            I’m a grown-up, responsible adult who drinks in moderation occasionally – I should be allowed buy a few cans of Primus along with my groceries if the humour takes me.

            And I don’t want to ‘consume as much as humanly possible’ during Good Friday – I don’t live in Ireland any more, and one of times I get to come home during the year is usually Easter. It would be nice to be able to meet my friends for a drink on the Friday before Easter without the Catholic Church (via the govt) telling me that I’m not allowed.

    Actually, the Irish can’t even build houses in places where they are needed. It’s not rocket science.

    Begorrah bejaysus I nearly dropped me shillelagh on me leprechaun with the charmingness of that sign. Good job I only had the one bottle of whiskey for breakfast.
