Downward-Facing Pong


Saturday morning.

Sandymount Strand, Dublin 4

Good to see Yogis in action on the sewage-closed beach this weekend. But how can they ‘bear’ the smell?

On a more positive note, for once an appropriate smell arrives in time to augment the #Bloomsday hell the rest of us endure.

Joyce would surely have approved of the stink. The “fine tang of faintly scented urine” completes the user experience for the rest of the day.

    How hard is it to dig out some temporary trenches parallel to the coast with interlinking perpendicular trenches to let the sea rush in, do a bit of a clear out, get rid of the bloom with circulation – bish. bash. bosh no more ghastly humming in sondymont or booserstown.

        Why? It’s Dublibs rubbish. Why should copies of Tge Village be buried in a tip in Kildare or sent to China? Grow up. The incinerator is the cleanest part of the locality.

      Dubz and their poolbeg nonsense. Like being proud of an oozing herpes sore.

    went through there on the dart the other day
    the stench coming through the window would sour milk
    pity the people who live there

    …er…no…Joyce would not have approved of any stink from Dublin Bay…he loved the Bay and it features in all his books…the first chapter of Ulysses is set on the Bay…as are several others…Finnegans Wake is mostly set around the Bay…from Dear Dirty Dublin to scrotum tightening he relishes the water…he also relishes the inner organs of beasts and fouls…maybe read some Joyce…
