    Having spoken to Ken of Synotts bar there is some good news for the Limerick City Forum.

    He wants to give you all the opportunity to win a prize. The prize is 2 Steak Dinners and a Pint of your choice in Synotts bar.

    With all the much spoken doom and gloom on the Limerick city forum of late why not have a local business man come on here and try to win your hearts and minds by filling your stomachs with a juicy steak and thirst quenching pint. Im sure he might even throw in some mushrooms and chips as well.

    How do you win this amazing prize? Well, its not as easy as just throwing your name in a hat. What you need to do is come up with a "Limerick"* and you must use the words Steak and Synotts.

    For those pedants of the forum. These are the ONLY considerations of a "Limerick" being used in the judging.

    You don't need to PM me or Ken or e-mail Synotts.

    Just put your "Limerick" on this thread and Ken will pick his winner. This competition will stay open until some stage on Thursday evening the 16th September to give as many people a chance to have a go.


    Remember folks this is only a bit of fun and if Ken gets a few more people talking about his steaks and heading out trying them then great. Its about time a publican gave back to the city/county so lets keep this fun.

    Try to keep it clean as well OK! Any rude "Limericks" feel free to PM them to me.


    [Insert Mod Edit here]

    Mod Edit: I have given this thread the all-clear. If this competition runs smoothly, we may consider running others in the future. Best of luck!

    Have you ever heard of Synotts the pub?
    Lads 'tis a great place to stop for some grub
    For me the steak burger
    While watching the rugger
    Would beat any night in a club!

    am I allowed put in one more?

    If you're in the mood for good Guinness,
    just head to the place they call Synotts.
    And sure while you're there,
    why not sample their fair,
    the unbeatable steaks are the limit.

  • Registered Users Posts: 882 ✭✭✭acalmenvoy


    This is a bit iffy, but if your not in you can't win, here goes....:p

    I went to Synotts one nite with the missus
    Was greeted by Ken with roses and kisses
    we ordered some grub
    Had a few pints in the pub
    and said 'what a fcukin great steak this is'


  • Registered Users Posts: 537 ✭✭✭angelll


    Twas a typical morning in the house of angelll
    Kids screaming for cartoons,spongebob or ben 10,
    Said i to myself,let's go down to Ken
    I'm sick of cooking on sundays to be fair
    We'll all go to synotts for their steak,medium or rare?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,366 ✭✭✭ninty9er


    When your head is baked and you're busy
    to cook would simply be silly
    drop down there to Synnots
    for a steak to your taste
    to pass on their food would just be a waste

    We may be in the debts of a deep Recession
    No Longer spending money like it’s going out of Fashion
    Why not head out to Synnotts pub
    For their fab value deals on drink n’ grub
    Who knows, it could be the start to a great session

    Good one but.....

    Kens offer of steak is enticing
    And his efforts they are enterprising
    To get round the mods
    He'll fill up your gobs
    While Synotts gets free advertising


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,672 ✭✭✭s_carnage


    While driving through Limerick on a short break
    My belly was beginning to ache
    When in my blind spot
    Synotts did pop
    And cure my troubles with a beautiful steak!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 994 ✭✭✭Twin-go


    You don't have to be a Sultan or a Sheik,
    To head over to Synnots for some fine Steak,
    You'd get such a thrill,
    When you looked at your bill,
    Sure, you'd have been mad to stay at home and instead Bake.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,816 ✭✭✭phill106


    One night we fancied some grub,
    We asked the lads on boards, whats a good pub?
    So we legged it to synnots,
    Had a steak and pint in it,
    Now i can see why its worth the hubbub!


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators Posts: 17,710 Mod ✭✭✭✭Henry Ford III


    There was a young bar boss called Ken
    who invited us pick up our pens.
    The first prize was a steak
    and a pint that'd make
    Limerick Boardsies compose once again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,816 ✭✭✭phill106


    There once was a bar called Synotts,
    Where i heard craic and good food were found in it,
    People come from afar,
    To sit at the bar,
    And end up with a belly with steak in it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,816 ✭✭✭phill106


    There was boardsie called Ken,
    That we all wanted as a friend,
    He offered pints and a steak,
    The offer in synnots for the uptake,
    Quickly before it does end!


    PS i am now starving for a steak


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,204 ✭✭✭dave 27

    There once was a fridge in Synotts
    Where The Steaks had gone off in it
    So they called up the boards
    And gathered the Hoards
    To join in the competition to win it


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,874 ✭✭✭padma


    The steak had gone off in Synotts
    So the manager says you gotta bin it
    But the cook says, no way man
    So he comes up with a plan
    Just advertise to win it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,874 ✭✭✭padma


    There once was a steak in Synotts
    Where the cook rubbed his penis in it
    So they says as a joke
    Cos everyones broke
    Put it in a competition to win it

    sorry mods just saw the rule of no rude "Limericks"


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,874 ✭✭✭padma


    The lad who won the competition
    Will never be allowed in to synotts to piss in
    Cos he called up the boys
    Ate his steak and they made big noise
    And got kicked out the door by petition


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,874 ✭✭✭padma


    Sorry lads on all the posts just got on a roll with the whole thing :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 18 Crabzork


    There once was a man from stab city,
    Who gave away steaks for a ditty,
    He jumped up on synnots bar,and called from afar.
    Just try not to make it to witty.


    Please excuse the spelling


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,874 ✭✭✭padma


    after winning the steak I unbuckle
    my pants be too tight by a knuckle
    must have been out o me wits
    to eat at synotts
    Thats why I'm having me a chuckle


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,361 ✭✭✭Itsdacraic


    The name over the door it is Synott
    And Ken pushes the mods to the limit
    The free pint it was stale
    Poor Berty did wail
    And the steak that he served me was minute


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,619 ✭✭✭✭osarusan


    To win a Synnotts pint and a steak
    There's simply no rule I won't break
    To a website make haste
    This poem cut and paste
    And I just hope that Ken's on the take.
