What' the cheapest you remember ..............

a pint of the black shtuff ...

and a pack a fags ...(10 or 20)

and a pouch of tobacco (state the weight with the price)

Same question for Dublin Bus ticket and Irish Rail ticket (adult) for a commuter journey ...

if you don't know exactly, then a ball park figure would be grand ..cheers

Why do people born in 1991 seem to have a common interest in how cheap things were in the 90s? Was there something in the water?

I can remember 10 fags 20P and 20 were 40P

There was an old guy in a newsagent that would do them singly too for 3P.
