Do the Dubs get an unfair rep?

    Do the Dubs get an unfair rep for being less friendly than us culchies? Was in Beaumont hospital for a few weeks and I was actually taken aback at how friendly and sound everyone was. I'm from Donegal myself which is supposed to be fairly friendly but It was easier to have a laugh with strangers in Dublin. Who'd have thunk it.

    Ive always been nice to everyone... but apparently im strange so take it as you will.

    I prefer lads from outside Dublin.

    Dublin lads are too cocky I think, went out with enough of them.

    A good culchie lad, now there's a proper man for me! Road frontage is a bonus :cool:

    There is good people everywhere though, so no generalising, my dads from Dublin and everyone I know from Dublin are lovely people.
    There are very unfriendly people in the country, in fact even more so, they carry shot guns!

    You had a prejudice that turned out to be groundless. How shocking.

    I think so, the majority of Dubliners I have met have been quite nice and friendly.

    It's no different than everyone worrying bout Limerick people.
    Are you startin!?

    No it's how he calls the police, not having a phone and such.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,743 ✭✭✭blatantrereg


    I find Limerick people are noticeably more polite than Dublin people in general. I suspect this comes from fear of stabbing though.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,059 ✭✭✭Sindri


    Just so all ye Dubs know, we all despise you and your city, please go back to Britain.:)

    Wasn't aware the Dubs had a bad rep, went to work there (from Cork) when I was 22 and found the Dubs a great pack of folk tbh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 116 ✭✭VagnerLove


    Country people just need to have some more respect for their superiors in Dublin.

    imo.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,333 ✭✭✭RichieC


    Anyone generalising based on where people are from are not only unfair but pretty stupid.

    Amazing isnt it. Thank you soooo much for your contribution.

    Actually, No. Not really into GAA.
    From experience living in Dublin and Sligo I find that it works both ways, obviously I suppose.
    Both sides who hate the other are just stupid, as I said before, I much prefer to hate people on an individual basis.

    Take another stab at that suspicion lark to see if you can get it right for a change!

    beating?
    shooting?

    As Corkman I like the Dubs.

    Never had problem with them.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,884 ✭✭✭Eve_Dublin


    Ironically, the only real hosility that exists in the Dubs V Cuilches battle comes from outside Dublin. In all honesty, you can dislike us as much as you like but we still love you :o (((((((((Hug me))))))))))






    And that's why were better than you.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,758 ✭✭✭✭TeddyTedson


    I think this will resolve the matter. (probably not)

    Dublin being the most populated country is bound to have the most arseholes in it.
    The same way people hate Americans for being thick..
    Ireland being a small country is generally quite well liked globally.
    Dublin is in Ireland.....brain **** zomg! :eek:

    Sorry - I must have gotten your point backwards if you're listing all the recent goings-on in the capital.

    Apologies.
