          Emilie:
          And you’ve never done a brave thing in your life?

          Grandfather:
          Maybe there are different ways to be brave. Did you know the French have the best carrier pigeons? And this could be the difference in the war – our messages getting through.

          Emilie:
          I don’t want to hear about the birds.

          Grandfather:
          They are released at the front and told to go home – this is all they know. But to get there they must fly over war. Can you imagine such a thing? Here you are flying over so much pain and terror – and you know you can never look down. You have to look forward or you’ll never get home. I ask you – what could be braver than that?

    I thought that was a Briot Grove Templar’s Hall in Waterford? That’s what Waterford Star reporter anyway…

      the neighbour is creepy?

      Can you imagine the state of the place when these teens come banging out drunk at god knows what time of the night/morning… possibly fighting, vomiting and singing or shouting.

        Young people being young people.
        You would be surprised at the number of Irish people who were once young .

        Harry did you ever go to a house party as a kid ?
        The problem is the frontal cortex, the part that understands consequences is not developed untill the early twenties, often later for lads, an evolutionary twist we don’t need anymore unless you are the US army recruiter

          Of course I have but I think you’ll find my issue was with Vanessa message calling the neighbour creepy. If this was going on around your own estate (and especially across the road) you’d all be clutching the pearls shouting the humanity…

            Ah Harry

            someone filming the comings and goings around Crumlin Village – no matter what business we’re at or what age bracket we fit into
            At any time of the day or night

            from behind their curtains, shushing
            Would not be sorted by pearl clutching

    What did they leave for? I get the Covid thing etc but the guards have no law that can stop them meeting up if the homeowner is there.

    Granted it was posted by an anonymous account on FB with a limerick moniker, but is it limerick?

    Here we go again with the Council House Covid19 Party meme. Those naughty proles.

    How about Broadsheet put a stop to this prejudicial narrative and include examples of the COVID parties in Blackrock, Foxrock, and Sandymount. Just as much a danger, and just as much anti-social behaviour and petty vandalism as any party anywhere; all because Ciara and Josh can’t go backpacking this summer or hit up Ibiza after the Leaving results come out.

    im always sayin it .. teenagers are the worst amongst us. Am here to defend that statement if anyone wants to chime in. They are responsible for almost all bad social things that happen.

        parents aren’t free of blame, but I know plenty of people who had fupphead parents and didn’t take it out on all around them.

          for anyone to improve there must be consequences to negative actions, there doesn’t appear to be any

            completely agree. people moan about the Gardai, when in actuality Ireland is very soft on crime. Teens seem to get off on the “they’re only pups” clause a lot.

      ‘They are responsible for almost all bad social things that happen.’
      so i had a quick look on the journal – only quick mind, cos that place is a kip – and it turns out that your statment might not be true.
      for example 6 people were arrested in a cash and drugs seizure in wicklow. it doesn’t look any teenagers were involved. also another 5 people were arrested in a dodgy horse dealing in roscommon and they don’t appear to be teenagers either. neither is the australian cricketer who done for rape. while that joseph mc cann guy was probably raping in his teens but that’s way beyond anti-social behaviour and he’s in his thirties now.

        well for me i think the worst societal behaviour means random attacks on innocent pedestrians, assaults, rapes, muggings, destruction of property, breaking and entering etc. and these are all committed mostly by teens. dodgy horse dealings etc. aren’t my concern as an older man walking past gangs of teens who throw rubbish at me and use language i genuinely never heard until recently.

    I’m with the kids on this, brothers and sisters. Party like it’s 1989. Let’s see a few raves happening on the rugby pitches on St Michael’s College, Dublin 4. If you can walk out of a party straight then it wasn’t worth being in…

    … nosey neighbour’s windows are gonna have a smashing time. Deservedly.
