what do you think about taking over a cargo port - lots of containers to block yourself off, security already in place, lots of fuel, tons of supplies in the containers.

Build a jenga house out of containers.

No one seems to have gone with mine yet (without bothering to read the whole thread :-), but it's not on the map).

The Central Mental Hospital in Dundrum.

Pros:
20 foot walls
Built to keep people in (which works in reverse)
Own generator
Medical supplies
Cooking facilities/food supplies/refrigeration units
Surveillance all over the place
Already has 100 comfy beds
Large gardens (for growing own food)
Plenty of parking for the chopper
It's a pretty old facility so with a bit of luck it would also have a well

Cons
You basically fortify yourself in there, it's a last stand. The Luas will hardly be running, so there's no way out.
No ammunition/artillery I guess (but am not sure as they have all the properly criminally insane in there, so the guards might be armed (??))
What to do with the patients?

My survelliance has only been carried out on one side though, if that wall you see in Windy Arbour doesn't actually go the whole way round there could be issues.

I should really find this out before the apocolypse.

Bailey point in Salthill would be a good spot:





The ground floor is mostly boarded up already, plenty of exits, roof space for growing if you're left there long term, its mostly empty, close to the sea if you have to make a last desperate break for it or just wanted to catch fish to eat, plenty of interior space that could be converted to other purposes like warehousing goods, and balconies.

Long term you could house probably a thousand people in there in relative comfort.

Added my place in, Central Mental Hospital, nice big walls, secure inner electrified fence, and at max only 80s patients if ever full but most seem to be there on days for rehab while at secure locations at night,

3 years ahead of you mate

and the wall goes all the way round too

Only weak point might be the river entrance near the far wall, behind mulvey park

Well all you really need is at least 2 or 3 years worth of food and materials. Then an underground safehouse or if you don't have one, go with the 'ol giant house in the country, never fails!

I dont think theres any point in making plans - because if the Zombie apocalypse happens most of us will be Zombies, except me of course.

Easter Island if it had more trees, in Ireland for a large group and I mean large a few thousand achill Islands only a bridge connecting it and plenty of land for crops, animals, shelters etc. But that be more later on where the threat and chaos is on the decrease, early on would say the island in lough derg forget the name anyway, safe easy access to the sea mainland and resources able to travel up and down the country for supplies and near me and my zombie survival kit.
Which I think should be packed NOW!!! as it can be used for nuclear,alien,army,other invasions of sorts

Arent there a number of locks to be negotiated & ardnacrusha to get around? taking a chance there if youre making a run for the sea.
If i was home, id prob be in donegal when the apocalypse hit, so id head to aranmore, owey, rutland or gola island - relatively close to the mainland for runs/keep watch etc. relatveily deep channels between them and the mainland too. Plenty of houses already built on them for shelter. Some arable land, and surrounded by the atlantic and no need to worry about eu fishing quotas!

If i couldnt get a boat, id head to lenveagh. Relatively remote castle and estate. Could be reinforced & made safe with no immediate danger (No real nearby population). Possibility of medieval weapons lying around - its been years since i was in the castle

True didn't think about that but still supplies would run dry in small towns quickly due to everyone going to the countryside where the supplies in the cities/large towns (limerick, athlone etc) are abandon because of the number of zombies. Risky yes but in a world of zombies what isn't risky, also maybe use a small fleet of light weight boats to carry and drop into the next lock.
