â€œit is an impression one sometimes get and thats itâ€!
yeah exactley sw101, an impression one sometimes gets! the whole city centre is not a kip, and the vast majority are decent people going about their business ...
I go out every Friday or Saturday, and am often one of those people â€œroamingâ€ the streets at 3am looking for a taxi home, sure there are scum bags out there, but you make it sound like bloody beiruit. Most people at 3am, while a lot of them are fairly hammered, are just out having a laugh and looking for a taxi. I have seen two fights in town over the last two years or so ( like I said Iâ€™m in town every weekend ) one of which was the one that took place in front of the Central Bank which RTE got on camera and have shown again and again and again and again and â€¦
Youâ€™re right, Oâ€™Connell Street is a mess, but Iâ€™m prepared to wait until the IAP is finished and judge it then, its crap that its going to take till 2005+, but the north city in particular needs a lot of work and its not going to change over night â€¦
Youâ€™re calling the city a kip now, do you not remember the 80â€™s ??? think about how much its changed since then when Dublin was nothing but the centre of a depressed economy and it really showed.
Iâ€™m as pissed off as you are with the delays, objections, crap infrastructure blah blah blah but most of these problems are problems of success, and Iâ€™d take them any day over being forced to hop on a boat to england.
