    Superb news. Recommend Achill. Place could do with the economic reward as the infrastructure is already there and certified.

      My money’s on the Cliffs of Moher. Walking Clahane about 3 weekends ago on a fairly grey and cold Sunday afternoon, there were two small civilian helicopters in the air around that area for over an hour, flying the coastline. At somewhere around the €750/hr mark per machine, someone was spending a lotta dough to get a view of the cliffs through the mist.

        Ha! Showing my age now, but some sort of Guinness “Tá siad at teacht” ad mashup with the Mos Eisley cantina would be good.

    They’ll be using CGI to erase all the bungalows around Achill. Place is ruined with everyone wanting a piece of the the view.

      “They’re shooting all around Kerry”….

      Paul Williams just did a sex wee reading that.

    Calm down boys…
    This is Star Wars. It’s going to be disappointing. That’s what Star Wars does.

    Don’t get your Y-fronts in a twist in anticipation, then say it’s not as good as you were led to believe it was going to be. You always do that.

    It’s Star Wars. It’s going to be disappointing.

        I could agree with you, but you’d have to ‘f’orce’ me to watch it first.*

        *-see what I did there? It’s a joke for nerds…forget it…it doesn’t matter.
