I used to think i lived in a posh area as we had more disadvantaged areas around us.
Now i go back and cringe as the place is a right kip and i never realized it.

Yeah, the scumbags will attack anything as long as they find a way to vindicate themselves.

"You foreign bastards" tends to be one of their favourite excuses.

I was actually chased home one night by about ten lads when I was younger because I was a "crusty bastard".

Horrible, horrible place...

It's a dive now a hideous nasty dive. When I was growing up Naas was the place to be far better than Newbridge we would have looked down on Newbridge actually and bad as Newbridge is now I would much prefer it to Naas it's not the town it was in fact to be honest lunch time on Saturday was like a ghost town compared to when I used to work in it.

Personally I blame the whole by pass coupled with the retail parks that keep appearing everywhere

Naas would be 100 times worse if it hadn't been bypassed 30 years ago. It was the worst traffic bottleneck in Ireland before the M7 motorway opened.

And I know Naas quite well and IMO it is not a kip. The problem with Naas was bad planning on the part of the Town Council allowed too many shops to relocate to the edge of town leaving the town centre to go downhill. Doesn't Naas have a property bubble era shopping centre that's lying half built?

There are a load of towns worse than Naas. Athy would IMO be the worst town in County Kildare.

I remember New Ross from my youth, such an average dull place. Gorey is just a bottleneck town.

Waterford seems alright.
Ever been to rathmullen in Drogheda ????
Makes Beirut look like Disneyland
Yeah, it has the towns best swimming pool.
That it does
But it's on the very outskirts of rathmullen and fairly well fortified to boot

If I never had to visit that place again it would b too soon, but family occasions always beckon.
It's not that bad at all.. Granted, I've no desire to head back but there's a couple of good schools, a lot of sport, good roads now, a few good bars and nice take-aways. As much as I disliked most of the people there bar my friends, I think it's a grand spot.

And most of the people I know got out of it.

I grew up there, so maybe I'm biased.. The housing estates are rough, and there's a horrible attitude towards any outsiders, along with a very religiously segregated attitude.. (they ask ur surname to find out what religion you are!) my mum's friend locked her 22 year old daughter away coz she got pregnant before marriage and no one knew she was even pregnant til after she had the baby, then she got preggers again and her mom kicked her out... She wasn't allowed to wear white on her wedding day by the priest..

When was this - 1958? And who under the age of 50 gives a flying f*ck what a priest thinks these days?

The wedding was like three years ago, the oldest kid is about seven at most...

The fact that people accept this behaviour is the worst part. I cant be home for more than 2 days without gettin cabin fever!!

Not sure where your getting this from, Wexford town is probably 1000 times nicer than any of the other three towns in Wexford.

From my frequent visits to Wexford I would rate Wexford town as the nicest town in the county and New Ross the worst. Enniscorthy is okayish - in a nice river valley setting - but people from there seem to despise their own town a lot.

I still hold firm to my view that Tipperary Town is the worst town in Ireland. A daisycutter or small nuclear device would improve that place.

Kenmare is beautiful and Killarney is picturesque if a bit over-touristy. Tralee is meh but Listowel is shabby, dingy town. Also the place where a man convicted of rape was cheered and supported by many of the locals. Delightful.
