Last night.

Oh, we’re back.

Meanwhile

Oh.

    ah go and poo Rick, if we didn’t get annoyed at stupid things then more stupid things would happen.

    that said, the LUAS chimes in daily with ‘O’Connell Street Shopping District’. District? Like District 9 yeah?

    Dublin has to invent new ‘Quarters’ every few years to pretend its a dynamic exciting city and not just a square mile of British High Street chains with added junkies. Somebody opens 2 Burrito shacks next to each other – it’s the ‘Latin Quarter’.

    Do the idiots not realise they are referring the area around Grafton Street which includes Grafton Street itself? They are not renaming the street.

      well it’s not a name on any city map, so it was fabricated. and unless it was fabricated by you, you cant be 100% sure as to where they’re referring to.

      from a county council happy to sell every square inch of the city to americans to build new offices and hotels, i’ve no doubt this is an attempt to americanise the city further.

    LOL. It’s is funny the way everything has to be a ‘quarter’ nowadays. It least they didn’t call it SoStG or similar.

            I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I was tripping all day!

    A Quarter is meant to be a descriptive of a part of an urban settlement and the descriptive can refer to inhabitants, commercial trend or lifestyle hence we have italian quarters or financial quarters or bohemian quarters.
    Grafton is a non descriptive unless it’s changed to Graftin’ perhaps. If it was Grafton Shopping Quarter that may do but probably incur the same wrath anyway. Gentrification at it’s finest.

    “It’s official, #DublinTownChristmas is here and we’ve brand new lights to welcome you to #GraftonQuarter!”

    Some of those “brand new lights” look remarkably similar to last year’s lights.

      20+ years.. I think the new sign is the one that says Grafton Quarter.. and, we are right to be indignant at these meaningless changes. If we didn’t mock we would still have the floosey in the jacuzzi, the chime in the slime and de spike in the s*ite. Oh, we still have that one. Grafton quarter me whole..

        It will last until the next recession/crippling depression coming down the pipe in the next 18 months then this “Quarter” business will be forgotten just like Arthur Guinness day (remember that farce?)
