        It’s become a joke.

        How much are they paying to use a public park and prevent public access for the best part of the summer? -“Commercially sensitive”
        Where does the money go? -“Commercially sensitive”

    Thirst of Dublin. Last time I was there it was a booze up festival. Early in the afternoon they had a live band and kids were bopping around at the front of the stage, the lead singer then roared, ‘turn up the mudder f**kin base, get this sh*t started’

    I know that it’s not cheap. But I have a blast every feck1n year!

    I think I’m an elitist now lads… pray for me

    Just hand your wallet to the wallet inspector as you enter. This event is the definition of Irish Meaness in action, with regards to food portions/per cost. They also completely scimp on the amount of meat in the meals, its ridiculous!

      “Just hand your wallet to the wallet inspector as you enter.” <– THIS. Great idea for a festival but absolute rip.

    I noted a mango, pineapple, lime and coconut Victoria sponge recipe by Candice at the weekend: must make it this week.
    I made Felicity Cloake’s “How To Make the Perfect Rhubarb Crumble” last night. Feckin’ delish, so it was.
    I’m starving now.

      Oooh I had a read of that. I love me a good crumble. Not much of a rhubarb fan though.
