    Having weird weekend, had greatful night out last night and didnt even wake up hungover. On other hand im really worried about my friend, he has been acting strange and really down and im not sure what to do..

  • Registered Users Posts: 336 ✭✭TheRealSquishy

    Come back soon Pyggy we really miss you <3 Soccy is willing to give you the best beard award! Not seeing his name in IRC has made it so real :(

    Gotta say it's real heartwarming how everyone is banding together to try and help even if it's just a facebook or a tweet! I love C&H!

  • Registered Users Posts: 158 ✭✭Noelly

    Hopefully he'll just turn up for his labs/classes tomorrow and it'll all just have been a big mix up or something.. :(

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,390 ✭✭✭Doublechinlolz

    I didn't realise it was a boardsie til I came here,I didn't recognise his real name but I recognised his distinguishable face. Does anybody have any clue? This is so terrible :( I hope he is ok wherever he is..

    The likes on that page are growing fairly rapid, more publicity can only help. Hope he's found soon.

    This is really awful. :( First thing I saw when I went online over here in China was the notice of his disappearance.

    This may sound strange but one of the first things that jumped into my mind when I read the announcement was this post he made ages ago that had me laughing for ages when I first saw it. I swear, if he turns up safe and well, I am writing that poem for him!

    Hope he is found.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,863 ✭✭✭Papa_Lazarou

    Having spoke to him on IRC a bit he always came across as a funny and really nice guy. As somebody said earlier it's strange how personal things like this are when you've just talked to somebody through an internet forum. Hope he's found ok soon!

    I'm organising for people to campaign (if that's the right word) in O'Connell St. today.
    Handing out a few fliers and asking around.

    Meet Albert Park side of DCU Hub @ 3pm. We'll be taking the bus to town - 3:15pm at the latest.
    Hopefully we'll have enough people to have some by the bus stops and some by the spire.
    Feel free to PM me if you wish to meet in city centre.

    If any of you guys want to come and meet us in O'Connell St at about 3:45pm, you're more than welcome :)

    Please come back, Pyg. You can have Davidius all to yourself, I swear. :(

  • Registered Users Posts: 600 ✭✭✭Mollikins

    Realised yesterday that Pygmalion was the missing guy. So horrible. :( Haven't been able to stop thinking about him since.
    Never really talked to him on Boards but was always amused by his posts. Hope that wherever he is that he is safe and well. Come home soon please!

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,116 ✭✭✭Salty

    There's pictures of him everywhere in word at all yet?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,532 ✭✭✭Ginja Ninja

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but according to the facebook group Paul[Pygmalion]'s remains were found in the liffey today,they've called for anyone who sees a poster to take it down.Im pretty sure everyone here is in the group so you can see the announcement for yourself

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,761 ✭✭✭Lawliet

    I'm so sorry to post this, but Pygmalion's remains were found today:

    I don't really know what to say, my deepest sympathies to his family and friends

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,590 ✭✭✭Pigwidgeon

    Just saw that there. Holy shít.

    RIP Pygmalion. You'll be fondly remembered here. Such horrible news :(

    The world is less brilliant with out you. I will not forget you. <3 Pyggy


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,248 ✭✭✭Slow Show

    I can't believe this...I just don't know what to say.

    R.I.P. Pyg :(

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,571 ✭✭✭Aoifey!

    Wow, I really didn't see that coming, thought he could have just went somewhere to get away :(



  • Registered Users Posts: 373 ✭✭HandsomeDivil

    This is so sad. I never knew Paul but he sounds like a great guy, God only knows what his family and friends must be going through. R.I.P

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,840 ✭✭✭Luno

    Only earlier on Pyggy crossed my mind :( RIP Pyg, a great contribution to!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,498 ✭✭✭Jamie Starr

    Oh no.... so so sad for his family, I really thought he would be found alive and well....

    Judging by his intelligent, funny and polite posts during my time on boards, he must have been an absolute pleasure to know in person, and have made a positive impact on a lot of people.

    My condolences to all his family and friends. :(

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,888 ✭✭✭Fergus_

    I honestly thought he would come home and it'll be all over.

    I never expected this. RIP Pyg

  • Registered Users Posts: 780 ✭✭✭cheesefiend

    :( This is really heartbreaking. RIP Pygmalion.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,625 ✭✭✭flyswatter
