The lucrative American tourist industry is bate down a well trodden path mate.

Off a cruiser or plane. Bate down to Killarney, bate up to Adare. Maybe Bunratty or Dromoland, up to Dublin for a pint of Guinness and fuck off back with the Irish experience done.

At the end of the day they’ll only invest in tourism if they see a profit at the end of it.

We were pretty fucked for the wild Atlantic way thing considering we don’t actually have a coast


#4097

A legend.

I’ll tell you one thing, Val Moloney will be called the biggest cunt in Ireland for raising this. Molla Donegan then with the sweep sweep.


#4099

We have an established set of families for years.

The coast had nothing to do with it ---- it’s a tourist trail. There’s more than Americans coming to Ireland - and there’s also the in house market… the point is that we/the council do fuck all to promote Limerick. They’d let the whole county fall down if they could — thankfully there’s private people/ politicians with a bit of pride and gumption.

Loch Gur should be turning over major bobs - if the same thing was in Kerry it would draw 100s of thousands and a festival around it.

Ya, an auld Polska Sklep is just what the town needs.


#4102

If Limerick didn’t have Lord Mountbackgammon it would be the poorest county in Ireland.

I drove through Kilkenny recently enough and couldn’t get over how decrepit the town’s were in it. It was like going back in a time warp once you crossed into it.


#4104

Kilkenny was thriving until 1921.


#4105

I think they’re beginning to get their act together now, belatedly.

Laughing at Charleville. A town with a thriving and growing Kerry Group plant and a massive Lidl logistics centre. Two fine employers.

:roll_eyes:


#4107

Ah yeah, but I think Mike Houlihan has moved into a larger premises and has hired two extra staff.


#4108

And they won the all ireland and walked all over the ‘carkies’


#4109

Don’t forget that it was the fella from Charleville that lost it for Cark.


#4110

Tis awful sad tis awful sad

How’s Mallow getting on since they closed down the sugar factory lads.

From Mallow up, Cork is pretty much a wasteland.


#4112

Why the fuck are you revelling in the unnecessary destruction of Mallow?


#4113

Mallow up to where?


#4114

I merely asked a question.

Why do you always jump to conclusions and make a gowl of yourself?


#4115

About 2 miles passed the hotel in Charleville.
