Red Bull Soapbox Farce

    what a load of poo. Turned up really early to see it, couldn't get a glimpse in because of all the shagging crowd and went home about half 12 because I got bored of only being able to see the backs of thousands of heads. Just goes to show how badly a crowd can be organised...

    Should have been a ticket only job with only a certain number of free tickets. I didn't think anything could top the crap which is the paddys day parade. The organisers should be bloody ashamed of themselves.

    I walked along Patricks Street at about 15:50 on the way to work. Patricks Hill looked like it had a carpet of people on it. Looked very red and much too crowded for anyone to be able to see a thing. I suppose the only way to get a clear view was to look out from a window in one of the buildings along the street.
    Does anyone know if someone died? It is a steep hill remember!

    yeah but they didn't even start from the top... the starting line was half way down the bloody hill! Waste of perfectly good tarmac.

    Anything free like that usually brings out every body and anybody! especially from the northside too :p

    I caught the last few mins of RTEs coverage yesterday afternoon - it looked lame enough.
