This afternoon.

Free form rock-n’roll dancing replaces the rigid line format.

        I’ll admit I’m not a SUPERB line dancer, but I’d give it a lash. Extra claps and whoops always go down well. With me, anyway. WHOOP! YEAH!

      1. Scoops yeah

        Really?? That’s disappointing and surely a missed opportunity to make Diageo a shed load of money and have a load of pi55ed farmers driving the length and breath of the country. Oh well.

        There certainly was when I went 4/5 years ago and I’m certain I saw footage of a flattened beer garden from the storm yesterday with Bulmers signs etc

            I just had a vision of the scene where Grenouille opens up his perfect perfume infront of the crowd….
            I’ll leave that there

            Janet its not been long that I have been able to banish that Süskind nightmare from my mind…. That was some end to a book…

    Jaysus, BS really has developed into a “left” wing, up the anti-establishment, down with the rural folk, we are urbanite, we know best, type of gobpsoo.

      They just post the pics with a description and say “Hup” and you get “down with rural folk”. Is that not a bit of leap A Person?

      ah stop,
      Dublin gets the Mickey taken out of it too and half the commentators are clearly from beyond the pale

          plus willing to bet most Dubs have a parent of bucolic origins, myself included, all blowins, muck still on the boots

            All inner city dubs, both sides of the family, back to great grandparents at least.
            I’m inbred.

            I fairness it’s been a very small survey
            I have decided to allow myself one nasty sweeping statement per day

          3. Bertie Blenkinsop

            I know self praise is no teeth but I’ve lovely teeth.
            Natural too, not bought in Turkey like the rest of my family:)

            well ok – i’m not as pure as bertie: 2 inner city grandparents, 1 from bray (dublin side), 1 “foreign”

          5. rotide

            One parent from the Bog.

            As a very young lad in croke park I was told you weren’t a real dub unless you were 3 generations between the canals and i burst into tears. That was taken as a sign of my true blueness and an exception was made

            Looking back I’m pretty sure there was a lot more swearing and at least one offaly player’s parentage called into question, but I look back on it very fondly

          1. Brother Barnabas

            more or less

            janet is building a monument in honour of my ar se in her back garden. i’m just helping with the concept.

            I have told you before about scratching until the plaster mould is dry
            I’m fed up doing it over and over
            Anyone would think you like being smeared in Vaseline and covered in warm plaster
