Are You The ‘Drogheda Bellend’?

This lunchtime.

Sometimes cyclists can also be obnoxious.

Some complete bell-end has kindly left his bike laying about, half on path and road for good measure at a busy junction in Drogheda town. Everyone is finding it difficult to pass by, but funnily enough, nobody has picked it up and put it out of the way. If it’s still snoozing when I leave the cafe, I’ll gladly upright it.

More as we get it.

Well, after enjoying a 45 minute siesta, I had another glance to see the slumbering pedacycle’s progress and much to my surprise its owner was in the process of waking up his bike. He was in fact, eating in the cafe and a man in his mid forties. No thoughtless kid was involved in trying to euthanise his trike….

    Probably a kid who didn’t think. I wouldn’t be losing the rag about this – just pull it in off the road FFS!

        Imagine the type of dose who a) takes a photo b) uploads it into internet c) write some drab poisonous drivel d) goes to cafĂ© for a bite to eat rather than e) lift the child’s bike up out of the way.

        Bell-end does not even begin to describe it. uggh

    The footpath is too low to catch the pedal on the bike so you can’t “stand it up” at the pavement, and it’s in front of cafes, pub and shops with lots of windows so you can’t really stand it against them. It’s no parking there at the corner, so you can’t just lie it flat in the road. Probably best to wheel it down the quay and leave it in the road there where there’s parking.

    im not being smart (well i am a little)., but like how are people finding it hard to get around it? I would be more interested in the advert board that seems to be blocking the rest of the path?

        1. Soundings

          Prop it up against the pavement end of the sign, and it still stops prams from passing. The sign is too narrow to prop it sideways against the sloped sides of the sign.

          Next suggestion, genius ;-)

        yes actually behind one, and i’d be more upset about the advert stand. As far as i can make out from the pic, even if the bike was not there, it would be a pain to get past that advert stand over the bike, if i did go past with the pram, i’d likely be pushing them both to the side. if you don’t or won’t do something about it, is there any point in moaning on here? if it bothers you, move it. simple as.

    THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE!!! Will someone please ring Joe Duffy while I finish my latte.

    Perhaps the “bellend” didn’t leave it lying out on the road, perhaps (s)he put it standind againt the curb or against the board and (a) the wind (b) the vibrations of a passing truck or (c) bellend pedestrian knocked it over. In conclusion, don’t jump to them.

    Who’s willing to bet that the person who sent this in is a regular boards.ie poster/contributer?

      A waste of time is right, he was sitting there drinking coffee just staring out the window for the full 45 minutes I was watching him.

    This whole notion of photographing people on the sly and sending it to BS is more than just a wee bit scummy.
    Get a bloody life.

    And BS ain’t much better for publishing it.
