    Some say that I don't take enough interest in the South forum, so I'll Try To Do Better. Let's start with a chat about the pubs in Cork, and getting inebriated in general. Where do you drink, pickup joints or cosy corners? What do you drink, good ould shtout or alcopops and scary shorts?

    If the thread is any good I'll scoop up the information and publish it somewhere. And we'll start another one, about clubs or summat.

    Nicest pint of Murphys I've ever had would probably be in Cogans (Carrigaline). Was more or less a regular in there before I was exiled to Douglas, now I'm a wannabe alcoholic without a watering hole. Still testing the waters in Douglas a bit. Not too keen on Barrys (murphys was awful in there last night). Ryans is marginally better but O'Sullivans is probably the cream of the crop so far. This week I am mostly drinking Smithwicks... Although I reckon I'll go back to the Murphys mid-week.

    Used to drink in John Sulls with a mate's family-in-law quite a lot a good while back. Nice pints and the craic was mighty, but you'd really need to be in the mood for it. Have you been to the posers gaff over by MacD's yet? Jesus, I think I'd go postal if I had to drink in there!

    where I drink:

    Old College Bar.
    it's dirty and smelly and full of students (I'm a postgrad you see - not a student) and has bad pints but I like it anyway.
    possibly because it's 3 minutes from my office.

    The Gateway cos it's a real pub, good music, friendly (albeit bald) staff, good pints. 15 mins from the office.

    Cissie Youngs cos it has nice tvs for showing matches,
    plus nice staff, friendly crowd, good food and good pints.
    7 mins from the office.

    And pre-ban the Bodega because with that high roof it was usually not too bad smoke-wise. Best selection of beers in here too, but it's easily my least favourite of the above.

    As for what I drink:
    I gave up the pints a few months ago - onto bottled beers,
    tiger if I can get it, whatever's on offer if I can't.

    That'd be.... "East Village Bar" or something to that effect? I was in there last night briefly, it's rather difficult to endure the level of gobshitery in there. I know (or knew rather) a few people that love the place; that's a perfect yardstick to measure the place by as they're all hopeless posers. Part of the "aren't we so pretty" brigade. Like a PRoC staff night out only with less prancing.

    Now theres an idea for a website service. Rant-For-Me.com , for people too lazy to rant.

    They type in their situation and someone else can do the ranting based on the given material.

    Who's up for doing this ?

    I wholeheartedly endorse this product and/or service.

    I must exploit my natural talent to rant incoherantly on practically any subject thrown at me.

    That's bollocks, Eircom and EsatBT are fully to blame for this incredible scenario! I can feel the cold hand of Fianna Fáil behind them!

    I used to work in Costigans but the place is gone to ****e since it was sold a few years back. Ah yes the white shirts for the girls were something special alright. Used to attract some attention when we went out for beers after work! I know it's sad but it used to do alot for the street cred hanging out with them in clubs!
