      Exactly. Disgraceful behavior. Young people eh? You can bet it wasn’t like that in my day. There was no excessive drinking and thumping each other like baboons, oh no.

      We took drugs and used flick knives or knuckle dusters.!.


    Unless it closed, is the garda station not 10ft across the road from Kielys? Yet according to reports, they took forever to arrive.

    Rugby chaps, in their canturbry tops, strutting around, consuming excessive amounts of protein supplements, popped collars (to amplify rugby expertise, apparently), you’d never get this type of behaviour with the lacrosse crowd, oh no..
