    I've seen terraced houses advertised for sale in New Ross at under €85000 !

    Considering the price of houses nowadays, this makes me wonder if there's anything wrong with the place??

    Is there??

    Everything is wrong with the place. What a dive. The only good thing in it is the bridge to get outta the place. As for nights out!!! Definitely a no go area, you're more than likely going to end up in hospital with stitches. Full of travellers as well. Nothing good with the place at all.

    kensutz may be crude but he's right!:ninja:

    WOO HOO! Someone agrees with me. Lol. Along with the whole of Ireland - bar New Ross.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9 ✭✭✭ irish wizz


    Actually I live in New Ross and I personally dont think its cheap apart from the price of petrol which is the chepaest in Ireland.
    For E 85,000 you would get a small 1 bed house with no garden etc, far away from town centre. Reckon you all need to open your eyes a little!

    The going price of a 3 bed room house in New Ross is E 120,000 at least and a new house is E150,000 to start with.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,185 ✭✭✭ kensutz


    Actually thats the only good point I forgot to mention. The dirt cheap petrol. Maybe it's to attract visitors lol.

    Ah well New Ross is in need of a new nightclub lol
    Reckon Waterford is a bit far away for us heavy drinkers to travel to. Anyway we might get REFUSED admission into the likes of the Manor CLub (Club LA) See we are not all stupid either here ha ha

    Club LA is no more mate.. and hasnt been for a long while..

    Its now a rather large and fairly stylish pub called Masons..

    But the some of the clientele (sp?) seem a bit up their own arses.. :D

    No...Ross needs to be filled in with quick drying cement and soon.
    Maybe they can use the left over cement from that tunnel?

    I work with a lad from new ross and i swear he's inbred.
    All he's short of is a banjo. Sure he's always humming the banjo tune anyway.

    I grew up not very far from New Ross and was never very impressed by it. There are very few shops, bare basics really, and anything that is there is very expensive. The music shop?? crazy prices.
    As for going out in , well that's something I wouldn't wish on anyone. There are lots of fit chicks in Ross and its possible to score but whats a little un-nerving is the gangs of blokes that ignore these women and just want to start a fight with the first person they dont recognise. Thats not a healthy pass time.

    It is pretty close to Waterford, thats a plus point.

    My father grew up in New Ross, until he saw sense and moved to Waaaaterfard! The last time I've actually been walking around in New Ross was for that big concert on the quay (which sucked btw)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 81 ✭✭✭ MazyMo


    Heck!! - didn't realise I was gonna get such a reaction about New Ross!!

    So, is this the worst town in the area??


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9 ✭✭✭ irish wizz


    Seems like you all think New Ross is full of ****e!

    Well i have news for you, I HAVE seen worst towns than New Ross and I personally wont insult anyones intelligence by stating the names of places.

    However there is no doubt that new ross lacks lots of things, that the shops are overprices with little or no choices in fashion (for women) and this is from a man!

    As for kensutz's post re attracting visitors I think we have enough with out advertsing cheap petrol :cool:

    But i have to agree with the post from Rolo Tomasi stating how men in this town ignore women, its a fact, well proven as well as the mental attuide of fellas in the company of these girls.

    But i have also seen this attuide in both Waterford & Wexford!HAVE

    If you want a proper head kickin' Galway's the place to be.
    If you think New Ross is bad for the Knackers, Galway's your only man.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 843 DaithiSurfer


    Anyone hear about the poor swedish guy who was beaten to a pulp in new ross at the weekend.
    He's on a life support machine now.
    Saw the local gougers trying to wreck a table outside a pub as well.
    Really rough place.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,472 ✭✭✭ AdMMM


    Just proves the New Ross is a fuc|<ing sh1thole. I mean who would want to live in a town where most the guys are more interested in KILLING someone they don't recognise. I hope the gang that did this are caught!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,487 ✭✭✭✭ Stephen


    The swedish guy is dead now.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 81 ✭✭✭ MazyMo


    Are there any other towns in Tipperary South, Waterford or Wexford which someone should be careful in (if you're not a local)?

    Or is this town just a one-off?

    No, not at all. In Galway most people will mind their own business and keeps their fueds amoungst themselves but ross is a free for all.
    It was bad went i went there [secondary school] but now its a disaster.

    Your actually right about Clonroche being better :D

    New Ross town looks like the whole place is about to fall apart, its so run down!! It needs to be done up badly!!!

    Mike.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 534 bozzie

    lol good one
    nah new ross is a ****e hole but thats because it lacks the funds to clean itself up a bit



    i say we start a clean up new ross foundation and see if we can get the money for a flame thrower together


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 81 ✭✭✭ MazyMo


    What's Wexford like in comparison to New Ross?

    Is Wexford an ok place, and fairly safe?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,682 chernobyl


    knackers...and what else did wexford give us?...strawberries.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 81 ✭✭✭ MazyMo


    Do you mean Wexford is full of knackers & strawberries?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 101 ✭✭ NedNew


    The circus arrived in New Ross last year. Luckily one of the zebra's managed to escape. Unfortunately for him he was caught and had to go through with the show.

    Ross has two night clubs that have been shut down. A cinema that shut down years ago. It needs a decent company to come along with a few hundred jobs.

    Until then the crumble will continue.

    But in saying that, Clonroche is a complete kip too and the town
    is full knackers and scumbags..

    Especially that estate on the left as you come into the town from
    New Ross.. whatever its called..

    Was out in Enniscorthy a few years back for that strawberry fair,
    was having great craic for the night we were there, when we
    were heading back to waterford the following evening, we
    stopped off in Clonroche for a few drinks thinkin it looked ok and
    went into one of the pubs there...

    Seemed cool enuff, nice local pub, drink was well priced and a nice
    open fire.. but that changed quickly enuff.. one of the lads was in
    the bathroom, some assh*le started on him and headbutted him
    for no apparent reason apart from my mate telling him he didnt
    want any trouble..

    After it all finished, one of the locals told us that yer man was from
    the estate up the road and the whole place is full of em,
    scumbags who have nothing better to do than cause hassle and
    fight...

    So there is another place I would avoid..

    Oh it is rough, the estate is well known for its trouble makers!! But most people from Clonroche are genuinely friendly etc

    You came up for The Strawberry Fair??? Not many people do anymore :)
