I live in Limerick, and I was interested in your picture. I was wondering if this was standard off-the-shelf humour, or a flash of comic brilliance on your part. I was also wondering, while on the subject of sloppy thinking, are there are no bad areas in Edinburgh? People have mentioned names to me such as Pilton, CraigMiller and Niddrie, but I don't know these places as I have never been there. That, however, as in your own case, shouldn't deter me from posting humorous pieces about your home town. It shouldn't, but it will, because I was brought up to have respect for others and not to bray about that with which I am unfamiliar.
Firstly, sorry that I offended you. Secondly, I was born a raised in Dublin near Bray and have enjoyed many a year taking the piss out of my own hometown, not just Limerick. Donâ€™t take it personally.
The Edinburgh city centre itself is architecturally well preserved bar a handful of ugly office blocks.. eg Jury's which is one of the worst (and Irish) and some awful government offices.. but in my opinion it is THE most beautiful city centre in the UK & Ireland.
