      yea. just a couple of handy men going for a walk probably. You’re name is Aido on here, but are you Judge Martin Nolan in real life?

    I imagine this is all about context as there are probably lots of people wandering around with knives like these about their person for a variety of legitimate reasons.

      Yes, very sad indeed. RIP.
      There has been a dangerous increase of crime in the city centre during the various lockdowns. Anyone that has ventured into town recently may have observed a grim atmosphere, more suspicious characters around, targeted harassment from beggars, illegal trading and no-go areas. Sad to witness.

        Very sad about that lady.

        A pal of mine lives in the IFSC, he was telling me that the place is just full of weirdos now. He thinks they where probably always there, but the lack of other people around has had a filtering effect.

        In the space of 10 mins last week, three separate people all off their heads came up to him to ask for a smoke and (or) to just “have a chat”

        One told him he was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ :)

    The Waterford way is/was to put two blades into the stanley knife, separated by a matchstick. Made a nasty cut that can’t be stitched.

        Couldn’t believe how viscious a place Waterford could be when I moved to the county in the ’80’s.

    This is terrible. This kind of knife culture being adapted by teens and young men. It will end up like the hell holes of London. The Gards and social workers need to step up. Maybe invest in these communities?

      Which hell holes of London? I’m genuinely interested to know which parts of London have been designated as such

        I heard the tube is hell – never got that. Would have thought the destination rather than the mode of transport could be decribed as such.

        1. H

          It can be hell down there, especially if there is an issue during rush hour! I remember having to deal with a drunk on a stuck overcrowded Victoria line at 7am – that was no fun….
