    There was a story in Killorglin about a roofer who came down his ladder after replacing a few slates above a shop, to find one of these tied to his ladder. The woman had just popped in to the shop. :eek:

    Listowel upper william st.
    Great photo!
    A story on donkey and carts.
    Some years ago Listowel went to a one way traffic system. An old woman with her donkey and cart used to come to town every day with her milk churn on the donkey cart. While coming into town was no problem as the donkey had traipsed in for years, it was returning home was the problem.The donkey wanted to go back the same way, the one way system did not deter the donkey from his old and practiced habits. A garda on duty saw this donkey and cart( with her ladyship on board with a few brandy's to boot) going against the traffic flow.
    Onlookers who witnessed the encounter said the garda who was asking the woman why she was not obeying the new traffic flow.
    He answer was " don't mind asking me ask the F***ing ass !!
    True story.
    Needless to say a new ass was bought soon after as the original one could not, or would not, follow the new system.

    They look like the work of the famous english artist Banksy

    Just to add: I think it is unlikley that Banksy actually did them, but they are of the same style.

    Blue Christmas tree, and now this ....
    According to the local news they're rats, and stencilled.
    This may be the work of aliens.

    Heya Laurs,
    Everywhere will be mobbed, and most places will be charging an arm and a leg getting in the door. Is there many of ye coming down? What kinda thing are ye looking for? Late bar? Night Club? What kinda age group?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,397 ✭✭✭ ANarcho-Munk


    So what's yer favourite pubs on a night out?


    For me it's gotta be Courtneys followed by the 98 bar and The Granary. The Grand is aight too for a laugh.
    Sometimes go to MacSorleys at around 2am just to make it for the lock in. Crazy bastids.

There are no less than three NO ENTRY signs leading into a certain small street here and either these donkeys can't read or they're direct descendants of the old lady's donkey I'm not sure.:Dbut they continue to drive into that street every day.Eat your heart out RSA!!

    If we were to link in all the extra threads on killarney would we have sufficient grounds I wonder to "Sticky" the Killarney Thread ? New threads on the town are being opened but I wonder would it be better on the one thread and then 'Sticky' the thread ?

    Any opinions

    Is that the hotel near the Cork roundabout near Supervalue or the one near the Tralee roundabout near Lidl ?.
    Did this happen suddenly or was the writing on the cards for a while ?.
    TBH either one of them never impressed me for a Sunday lunch.

    Ah be fair, they got 5 hours notice that there was a meeting with Frankie Whelan, then it was confirmed. 3 o clock tomorrow all doors locked.
    It will open again in a few months under a different name but because of the "liquidation" there is no guarntee of redundency, severance pay or holidays owed.
