      Ruh, roh. You’re right. They’re the old Leap card fares. New ones came in on Monday.

      Just call it the Metro and leave it at that… otherwise some cretinous civil servant will give it a make-up name in Gaelic!!!!

      God Forbid!!!!

    If Dublin had an underground rail network it should be called De Train Down De Drain

    Cos we love a bit of a rhyme when it comes to public infrastructure

    Light Innercity Operational Subway, or LIOS

    If you get confused, the Luas is suas and the Lios is sios.

    I worked wayyy to hard on this.

    1. pmc

      But Lios would be pronounced “Liss”.

      And it would be the “Luas is thuas, and the Líos is thíos” if you were going down that route.

      *disappointed look*

    If Dublin had an underground rail network it should be called delayed by… ten minutes… due to… the late arrival of an incoming train at… Fairview.

    or the Pearse station tannoy version…

    You know, a town with money’s a little like the mule with the spinning wheel. No one knows how he got it and danged if he knows how to use it.

    If Dublin had an underground rail network it should be called: “Neath the old Dub city”
    Because we don’t have olive trees. So the real lyric wouldn’t work. See? huh?

    If Dublin had an underground rail network it should be called out for the enormity spent in consultancy fees and its shameless continuation of croneyism etc etc.

    1. cluster

      Why? Do you have the slightest bit of evidence that the building of the transport network – Luas, motorways, etc – have involved excessively large consultancy fees and cronyism. Could you share some of this evidence?

    “Bloom”

    Named in honour of Leopold Bloom, protagonist of Joyce’s Ulysses. It seems apt given that Bloom is remembered for his journey across Dublin.

    Actually that map is very useful and a very nice piece of work. The other map is brilliant – but is a graphic based on a future plan for Dublin transport. The guy who did it has a great idea, pity it won’t happen.

    It’s nice ‘n all but me gaff isn’t a poxy tourist centre. Why on earth would I want a reminder of the daily commute hanging on me bleedin’ wall?
