Reply To: Roddy Doyle’s Dublin
The first message in this thread specifically mentions a quote from Roddy Doyle about drink and says “any thoughts?”. So excuse me if I actually address the question that was asked.
The reason London came up was because the article was printed in a London-based English newspaper (and ironic because of that). If it had been printed in El Pais or its Portugese/Hungarian equivalent, nobody would have mentioned English opening hours.
