    I love waterford, completely unrelated to the documentary but I would move there in a heartbeat if i could

      I’m thinkin’ about it…… I’ll miss Dubln though…. *sniff*

      On a recent stay down there, in Waterford city, I went to a Post Office to send a registered letter. I was told, “you’ll need a padded envelope for that, you can buy them across the road in the stationery shop”… eh? I got a bit confused, stood back from the counter and looked up at the booth and thought ‘yep, I’m in a post office, what did he say again’…. now back in the room, I smiled and took the instruction given – across the road.
      Off I went. It was sunny, everyone was pleasant, and I was in the zone, just potterin’….
      When I asked for the jiffy envelope in the stationery shop, the two sales assistants who were engrossed in their own conversation eventually acknowledged me very pleasantly, and gave me my next assignment… “you’ll have to go across to the post office for change”…..

      I was grinning from ear to ear after that…. I’m sure that’d annoy some people, but I found it, at the time, quite funny :)

        Really beautiful city and so affordable to live, not a million miles away from Dublin (for a commute)
        But with kids and all it’s too much hassle.
        Maybe when they’re a bit older but I’d like to settle there.

        That would have the steam coming out of my ears Clampers.

        I don’t remember any mass shootings in waterford recently, so I’ll commend you on your patience.

    Expect that area to be used for all sorts of political slogans from now on – “don’t pay water charges”, “refugees in”, “Refugees out” .
    Pretty uninspired vandalism.

    Where are all the usual suspects defending murals like this….. not interested because its a working class lad from Waterford in a tracksuit?

      I would assume it’s because this particular discussion has been largely played out. You either think they’re a good idea or you don’t. Both sides have stated their reasons over the last few months of these posts.

    You know they’re serious because they have REPEAL graphics on the decks of their boards.

      For the genuinely lovely memory this quote trigger I can only say thanks.
      It’s mad the things that can remind you of someone.

    Replacing instructions on what to do if you feel like killing yourself, with instructions on what we need to do to be able to kill an unborn safely, freely and legally in our own country. Well done lads. Hope ye get loads of likes.
