Place is too damn hot. For that reason alone I couldn't live there. Could go to Canada I suppose, but Canada is too damn cold.


Is the temperature in Ireland just right for you then Goldlilocks?

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

Ahhh, the lads that go to Sydney, drink Magners in O'Neil's in Kings Cross every weekend till they pass out for 11 months, then go to the Whit Islands for a month, come home to mammy for Christmas and go on about how they can't wait to go back to Oz


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

Do the toilets really flush backwards in Australia?
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 ****.

Perhaps he was talking about O'Malleys?

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...

That's a waste of their year down there


A year wasted is NOT a wasted year

Whats the story with lads when they move down there, the hair gets bleached, pumping iron, next tattoos....acting all like they're the coolest fcukers ever, when infact they were nerds at home!!!

I know about 6 lads like this, Aussies must be laughing their holes off


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.
