nicest place you could move to would be San Francisco, weather is beautiful, not too hot and it gets cool at night. people are nice, no aggressive hassle like you would see in most Irish towns at 3am on saturdays

San Diego is 2nd nicest for weather. big earthquake potential in that region tho in the foreseeable future, alot worse than anything thats happened recently in the world

Think you are dreaming mate or you just made it up, there is no such Pub as O'Neil's in KX or Sydney.

Yes it's true, when you flush a toilet in Australia it spews **** and water out all over the floor. It's why everything and anything from Australia smells like ****.

Maybe as there is an O'Malleys but definitely no O'Neil's, I suppose if you are going to talk shite at least make sure its right.

It's hard to remember the names of all them pubs. They all have some diddly-irish name. All just blends into one after a few years...

If they knew how you felt I'm sure they'd tear up the qualification that they studied for that allowed them to travel over there and have their tattos and suntan lasered off. Infact lets have a whipround to see if we can pay for some kind of 'eternal sunshine of the spotless mind' treatment to erase the memories of their time away too. Would that make it all ok?

What in the fcuk have you ever done with your life, out of curiousity? Likely nothing, like most people stuck back home.

Outside of the city centres the vast majority of suburban Aussie bars are sh1te. The busy- ish ones are full of old men wasting away their lives on poker machines. The quiet ones dont have anyone drinking in them at all. Barely any have live bands playing. Aussies under a certain age dont have a "local" the same way we do. Its hardly any wonder most Irish frequent places with a bit of live music, young crowd and where you can drink from a pint glass.

I moved here and I haven't bleached my hair or got a tattoo, I go to the gym but I always did that at home anyway.

I was a nerd in Ireland and I'm still a nerd here only now I actually have a good job and what's looking like a decent career ahead of me. I wouldn't have that if I didn't move here. Normally I wouldn't go around pointing these things out but hey, you brought it up.

I'd safely say I've encountered thousands of Irish since I got here and for the record, I'd struggle to think of more than few who fit the description you've given.

It's pretty pathetic to be putting people down for trying to improve the quality of their lives.
