    Now see here Mister Thomond78 - if indeed that IS your real name - even though it was someone from the county of CLARE who described the CLARE billboard, you appear to be directing criticism at the fine Limerick people of this here internet forum, for being SENsitive and for having a chip on their SHOULder.
    And ALL this despite the fact that you hail from Cork and everything! My oh my ...

    Ladies and gentlemen of the wise if rather strange-lookin jury, what do YOU think of this position?

        They say that if you look into a mirror at night and say "Limerick" 3 times, LimerickDeco will come to your house and mudrer you.

          Basic principles: you take on responsibility for occupied territories. And with the incessant Anschluss annexation of territories west of the river, that carries the responsibility with it.

            Murder the language in front of you, surely?

            EDIT - anyhoo, this is fun and all but probably better suited to Blabla, so maybe we should try to restore some sort of tenuous connection to ROG's Examiner articles.
            Tis but a scratch.

                Simple answer to that. Because we have been hyper sensitized to the national media's Liverpoolisation of Limerick City over the last two or three decades.

                According to the national media it seems that crimes committed in Limerick City are as a result of the barbaric nature of the people there, whereas crimes committed elsewhere are the result of criminals in an otherwise wholesome community.

                This is caricature but it's hard learned and keenly felt.

                The high concentration of council estates in the city - in part thanks to the surrounding county councils freely allowing planning permission to private properties alkowing the middle class to relocate outside the city limits- also give the posh media an excuse to look down their noses.

                The shoulder chip in Limerick City is massive. I remember my late mother denouncing Angela's Ashes for its portrayal of the city pointing out that the film makers had to go to Cork to get the rain!

                  I remember the Mayor of Limerick being filmed trying to run that one.

                  At which point it started raining on him. :D

                        I thought the article was poorly edited myself. Lots of single sentences that should have been expanded. ROG may be a straight talker but his writing could use some help. Or maybe his ghost writer's does.

                          It's the truth - J.Cash can either deal with it and improve or piss and moan about it.

                                Tom Humphries writes in the same way. Lots of short sentences, some of only one word. Honestly.
