  • Closed Accounts Posts: 687 kano476


    i went to the one in smithfield in dublin last year and they gave you the skates there. id imagine its the same here because who the hell in ireland ownes a pair of ice skates? cant remember how much i paid though cause we got it on cred card. probly between a tenner and 20 each. maybe less for under 18.

    It's well past lidl, the only ting beside lidl is an empty field.

    It's on the Dunmore Rd Ring Road, opposite the hospital.

    Nope!

    Lidl is just off the Dunmore Road, The ice-skating place is on the outer-ring road, which is about half a mile away!

    ill repeat my last statement: FOAH!!!!!!!

    its all the same f*cking area so please shut up ye nerdy twat.


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


    Well you wouldnt want az to come all the way down from Tipp, get the bus to Lidl and then find out that nothings there!

    Anyway, it's open now.

    Not sure of the prices, but might be going there this weekend!

    It's either go out on Friday night and get totally legless, or save meh money for an hour of ice-skating...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 687 kano476


    or get totally legless on a frosty night and have your own version of wintergarden - in your own garden! Wehey! fun for all the family. o.k ive realised you were right about where it is, i was confusing lidl with tesco - my bad. ur still an a$$hole though.

    Go pissed! One of the lads did that this year and didn't fall at all, compared to last year when he didn't stay up at all :D

    It is what it's.

    The almost-falls are far more entertaining than a stratforward splat imo :D Arm-flailing twists and turns as well as a few good screams for ppl to get outta the way!

    It is what it's.



  • Closed Accounts Posts: 687 kano476


    ah the best though is when someone who thinks theyre great shoots out into the middle of the rink - realizes they dont know how to stop and slams into the barrier at the other side! saw it happen last year in smithfield flippin brilliant!


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


    Im just so great, I'll be a natural!
