    The river Shannon - the longest river in Ireland and Great Britain, flows right through the very heart of Athlone. This suggests that there's lots to do with boating, sailing, water activities etc.

    Athlone is well endowed with opportunities for things to do.

    Rugby club is just off the ballymahon road. There is 3 mens teams (1st - AIL, 2nds - J1 & 3rds - Social and beginner level) teams and a ladies team so something for everyone.

    What night you train depends on what level you want to play at?

    If you pm on your details and what level you want to play at I can get someone to ring you.

    Rivers aren't useful if you don't like water.

    Shannie you are obviously a person who has never been out of this town.

    And your attitude to it is typical of same.
    Its only when you go away for a while that you realize what a great place it is to live and bring up a family.

    So my advice Shannie.....go away for a while, it will do you a power of good,

    and you will return a different person....hopefully.

    Please name these places and provide examples of what exactly is better. I assume they are similar size ish, we're not competing with Vegas here.

    Well nobody can say that you didnt provide specific places or examples.

    Do me a favour and whinge to your parents about how terrible the town is and ask them why they chose to live here. While your at it, learn how to make a point properly.

    Even better Shannie
    Learn how to be a condescending c*** and you'll fit in perfectly well here


  • Registered Users Posts: 19 cloudz


    From my point, being a good place to live must have a good educational system. So how about primary and secondary schools for kids?

    There's no split between regular schools and fee-paying private schools, which is a plus. Primary schools are much of a muchness, I'd say, regular National schools for the most part with one Gaelscoil and one Mixed National School.

    At secondary level, the Bower and Summerhill are two girl's schools (one each side of the river), and the Marist and St. Aloysius are two boys schools.

    There's also the Tech Community College, for boys and their sisters.
