      I can see the headlines now “Jim Larkin, in King Kong identity scare”

      The recently reserected Jim Larkin, last night shocked Dubliners by climbing up to the top of liberty hall, then changing himself back into a much larger version of his statue, imortalised in Dublin’s O’Connel street.
      This move, the latest in a whole series of King Kong solidarity strikes aims to etc etc etc blah de blah etc etc etc blah de blah etc etc etc blah de blah……….

      Welcome to Dublin
      Please use our new underground system “De Fooking Metro”
      It only has one stop but shure why would ye be wanting more than one? It cost us 5Billion euro but is hailed by of government as money well spend!

      i can’t believe that you used an image of Winnipeg’s skyline . Winnipeg’s skyline has never looked so good.

      Rita,

      I think from this evidence is obvious that no attempt whatsoever is being made to hide such weapons!!

      Hahahahahahahaa!!! Those are really funny, i say go for it and lob in a planning application for these, Paul Clerkin, just to see a look on the faces of the DCC people. That triumphal arch would look COOL in the Docklands. That’s an architectural monstrosity to be proud of. Plus if Labour are back in government by the next election(its likely, if our PD friends fall on their face:) ) Big Jim on the Lib Hall will be yours!
