Huge regret of mine that I never got to a proper acid house style rave. I was at one or two illegal raves, the likes of the bunkers on the golf course in Bettystown etc, but not to the scale of what they had across the water.

I remember also there was a big event being organized called Mecca. We bought our tickets well in advance and had to meet I think around Temple Bar on the night of the party to be told where the venue was. There was also buses due to pick all the eager ravers up. I remember getting to the pick up point and seeing a poster on a wall with the following written on -

Mecca cancelled due to Garda intervention

We were gutted. Well, for an hour or so until we landed back in the Temple of Sound and got off our faces as normal.

the problem with "ilegal raves" these days is they get plastered all over bebo etc which is very closley monitored

we need to do a "boards ilegal rave" via pm only

Yeah it kinda takes the needed secrecy out of them, discussing venue, date and drug arrangements online. May as well walk into the local Garda station and hand over the plans!

Should do a boards one alright, although there would probably be only about 15 people at it Standing in a circle with a ghetto blaster in front of us, heads nodding off our t*ts to this..

you took the words right out of my mouth my friend, if someone can organise a venue, and decks,etc and lights and all that business ill most certainly organise DJ's and the music side of things (people will play for free of course) but IT MUST BE DONE BY PM ONLY and only a select amout of people must know until an hour before it actually happens

what i suggest is we do something, my other suggestion is that no other word of this should be on any thread on boards after this post.

I'll be in touch
