    being from the south east means i am very close to a Cork accent (about 20 miles) which i have avoided :)

    no offence to Cork

    Knowing that this area has been continually inhabited since the end of the last Ice Age. Knowing that Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland. The trees and the weather and being near the sea.

    The bad thing about the SE is that the scum in the Dublin government have made a right hash of the infrastructure and it is quicker to get to London than to Dublin. And as for the Radiotherapy situation - I really hope those politicians responsible die screaming.

    The mild weather, less snow, frost and ice as a result.. although
    whoever came up with that slogan the "Sunny Southeast"
    should be kicked around the place...

    The nice coastline and beaches, without being battered to hell
    like the west coast..

    The house prices are still reasonable compared to Dublin, Cork
    and Galway...

    Thats about all I can think of at the moment, although Im sure
    that Ill think of some later.. :D:D:D


    Unfortunately Im stuck in Dublin at the moment and it seems for
    a few years yet. But hopefully Ill get to move back there soon and
    to somewhere near the beach and some fresh air.. :rolleyes:

    I reckon around The Raven in Curracloe is the best place for a walk - absolutely gorgeous!!!

    so your a dub from the southeast who wants to be a westie? right.

    I want peoples opinion, does tramore have a bad rep? Ive talked to a few people (not from tramore) who have said it has a bad rep and it considered a bit of a sh*thole. is this true???


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 255 ✭✭ technobob


    or ya mad?

    tramore is full of surfer chicks and cool dudes !!


    with a few scumbags thrown in for good measure


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 687 kano476


    well it wouldnt be your irish town without the token scumbags would it?

    cool you make it sound like baywatch.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 255 ✭✭ technobob

    I hate Tramore but then Im old.used to bring the kids to Tramore every sunday when they were on school hols.I hate the smell of the chips the smell of the amusements, the scum of Dublin use the place a a holiday resort as do a lot of northern folk.im my opinion its a slags paradise.....but hey .whatever floats yer boat.:) The beach is nice, but too many dogs.
