Sorry to drag the thread down here and sound old (im 29 next week btw)
I live in dublin now and come back every other weekend still, so am still with it in terms of local stuff. It's terrible to see the state of 'down the town' these days isn't it
there used to be a time it would take me 40 - 60 minutes to cross west st on a saturday for meeting folks i know. No there are so many closed shops. Now theres nothing to do on west st at all, used to me my saturday ritual to go hang out at back of town center , browse cd's in golden disc's , look at shoes in eagletons with girlfriend (bought shoes there last week glad they are still around!!!!! ) head over to paddy's (anotehr cd place below the barbers on peter's st (is he still there? i know it crossed the road over the years) over to mr ace's all the way back to look at more shoes and girls clothes in every shop on the way with my girl till we got to flip on narrow west st and ten into hollywood west for a mug of scaldey and a toasty and chips.
These days there fcuk all to do on west st , at least keirans is still there.
Just dont like scotch hall its too much like dundrum for me
Sad to see so many places go from the town like the sound shop in there land mark building hands up whos been to it since they moved? and its actually ony 5 minutes walk from my parents place now lol and i aint been there
