    I can’t wait for the next round of photos featuring Leo and Justin.

    Strolling down the beach eating ice cream with their trousers rolled up around their ankles, out shopping together on Grafton St., in the bath..

    I was away at the week-end, came back and now there are Union flags and Ulster Flags flying outside where I live in South Belfast. It may appear incongruous, but I”m spending 11/12/13 July in Dublin with my Protestant mate, Andy. It may turn out to be terrible, but I’ve rented a 1 bed just behind St. James’s Gate.

      Best of luck to you Shay! I work up that way and it’s a great area. I love it anyway.

      I’m not sure how I feel about Protestants being in the capital. Sure god only knows what they’d get up to, with their extra verse and that. And sure they stand up at all the wrong times.

      Shayna – are you a boy or girl? Cause if you’re a girl and you’re not married to Andy we will have to have a serious think about this anti Catholic approach to Dublin. This is not laughing matter.

      Other then that, I hope you get the weather.

        Last time I looked in the bath, which was quite recently, all the evidence pointed towards female.

    3. I'm "alright" Jack. Mad Jack is on annual leave.

      Just for 3 days?

      Anyhoo I had folks over visiting recently and took them to Book of Kells, Christchurch and Dublin Castle. The latter was the most interesting from a neutral pov- I mean it’s interesting to see how the Viceroys etc literally lorded it over us all here back in the day. Not that much has changed

    Already all the fluffy Leo photos. We get it: he’s gay, young, ethnic minority, photogenic and seemingly progressive. Forget about the carefully orchestrated PR. Forget about his right-wing agenda, anti-working class sentiment. HE GETS UP EARLY.

    1. I'm "alright" Jack. Mad Jack is on annual leave.

      Who cares? He presents a lot more modern and progressive image of the country than some sad oul fella dad dancing in jeans his wife picked out for him at Penneys. All these lads actually do is gurn for Ireland they don’t do any actual work

    I have to say, I’d forgotten the gay thing, I was a tad more focussed on the whole right-wing aspect of Fine Gael. I’d be a Fianna Fail type -except Fianna Fail aren’t who I remember. Dev is gone- a long time ago! Now, he wasn’t the best of us, admittedly, but – he did deliver a divided country..

      Shayna, are you insomniac or do you work irregular ours?
      (Just being pure nosey, cos you always seem to post in the early hours)

      1. Shayna

        Anyhoo, I’ll be in Temple Bar, in the pub – I know it’s over-priced and it’s a tad touristy. But next week, there’s going to be an influx of types from the North. It’s the the 12th of July thing. I’d be the skinny blonde six foot tall type . (Yikes, I’m 6 feet 2).

          1. Shayna

            Sure, but everyone knows it. I gots to goes there. I’ll sip tea earlier on Grafton Street, then go to town in Temple Bar.

          2. I'm "alright" Jack. Mad Jack is on annual leave.

            Depends what you’re after. People actually enjoy themselves in the Temple Bar pub you wouldn’t know much about having fun though by the looks of it

    I’ve never done the Guinness thing. Anyhoos, I’m pretty much determined this time.

    1. Happy Molloy

      myself and some of the regulars here are heading out for beer tonight. I’ll send you a DM

      1. Shayna

        I’ll not be in Dublin until next Tuesday, where you’ll find me in The Temple Bar. As explained earlier, I ‘ll be the unlikely blonde tall type.

        1. Sheik Yahbouti

          ” Oh, I’m looking for a woman, about five foot six – ain’t into glamour, just in to kicks – just a sweet talking lady, stepping dynamite, who’ll take me for granted in the heat of the night……

          1. Shayna

            I made the mistake of misquoting song lyrics a while back, it’ll come back to haunt you.

    Enjoy your stay Shayna, hope the weather is good and remember to drop your eyes and tug your forelock if you come across any member of the government here. You’ll know them by their lack of compassion and complete distain towards the poor and homeless here

    1. Shayna

      I’m no stranger, born here, etc. I know how to behave, without getting arrested by your local garda.

    ‘nawful shame the Dubs had to get one of their footballers to demonstrate hurling

    no wonder they don’t want to go to Thurles

  8. Shayna

    1. Frilly Keane

        1. Frilly Keane

          ‘meant the cars
          they’ll be loads of Ulster Hurling people down on Sunday

    I’d often wondered about BS reader types, and whether I’d like to meet them. I was in Brighton a couple of years ago and was mistaken for Bono’s daughter’s friend (I know). Anyhoos, the guy I was talking to was from Dublin, I mentioned Broadsheet, and not only did he know The Preposterous Type, but he was was his best mate. Following a chat with the tall chap at BS – he had no idea about the fellow.

    1. It Won't Stand Up In Court

      Come on Northern Ireland Come on

      Why are you back living in Belfast of all places Shayna, is it work?
