    Uber would be great for rural communities, to allow people still go out for a few jars and not have to worry about how they will get home. Pity the govt. blocked it coming in here.

      Wouldn’t they need daycent wiffy tho

      All for it btw
      I just think that if we’re about repopulating rural Ireland
      Wiffy infrastructure is obligatory

    The Irish Times has an article online ‘How Cistercian College, Roscrea got its mojo back’. The school was going to close last March when it had a low of 167 students. Now, after a huge campaign and money pledged it has 170. Eh, have we missed something? Past men were told last Spring that the school would hope to have over 200 for September (that’s the September just gone).

    The problem that rural pubs face is the most of their usual clientele are currently being barred from pubs and clubs the length and breadth of Australia.

      Whereas the Bean Savages make reality TV programs (series, mind you) about their little cans making idiots of themselves and their country in various holiday resorts.

    I seem to have touched a nerve.
    Are we a touch ashamed perhaps of those refreshed fellows in their ill-fitting GAA shirts making tools of themselves outside Bondi Beach hostelries ?
    The reason why country pubs in Ireland are dead is that even the boggers find the countryside a morgue and have cleared off to create trouble elsewhere.

      I know your being an ejit about it but it’s true. I was in Oz many moons ago and the boggers were humiliating ….

          No far from it. Just a normal person.

          That’s the problem with them, they disgust the decent among us.

            You clearly one of them, if your avatar is anything to go by.

            Three prize specimens knocking lumps out of each other in Gaa jerseys. We have more to offer the world than that you know ….

        A chum of mine is holidaying in Sydney – he reports that while it would be ill-advised to tarnish all the Irish People with the same brush there do seem to be rather a lot of them acting the maggot while on the drink.
        Irish accents definitely put the notoriously gung-ho security guards outside bars on edge.
        Patrick’s reputation precedes him.

          Shur we all know there’s lads losing the run of themselves out there
          an’ making a show of us

          let them at it
          it’s not like they’re gawking all over your front step ffs

          Gosh, you’d swear the English never had a reputation for loutish behaviour when on holiday. You’ll find this sort of behaviour belongs to age groups rather than nationality or class.

            The Irish young fellas, particularly a certain breed, where much worse.

            I have a feeling Frilly was the one of them.

          2. Woof Woof Frilly Keane

            A certain breed huh
            You are party to the cohort that proclaimed me a Dog
            No others have gone that far, drunk or sober. Not even the Meath, Nordie or Kilkenny lads

            And ye’re no Working Lunch setup yerselves
            So I’d be slow to be looking down my nose at anyone or calling lads out
            Like you’ve just done

        Your description of ‘boggers’ as one mass is akin to people from the sticks describe Dubliners as knackers because they encountered a few unsavoury ones, once upon a time outside Heuston Station. There are as many types of people living outside Dublin as within it. Incredible, I know.

    By jove I’ve just noticed the photo in the UK Indo.
    That’s a brave fellow taking out his Lambo on a day like that.

      Really? Where did you expect Michael O’Doherty of VIP magazine to be today exactly?

    …hey Bodger…thought normal service was to be resumed today…looking forward to my favourite cartoon character, Desperate Dan and all we get is Lord Snooty…

      There is a stand at the market at Sandyford industrial estate for lunch every Friday. By god the sushi is phenomenal.

      Are you in town Harry? Musashi on Capel Street. They’re also in IFSC, Sandyford, Hogan Place and Parnell Street.

    3. Harry Molloy

      know all those places, was just wondering if you’d get decent fish! think I’ll order a musashi :-)

    So, when Zappone opens those child support centres will Breda O’Brien demand that they be declared Zappopened Centres?
