    everything has been very quiet this year, thank goodness. Given that there is a €50,000 fine for possessing fireworks the dealers are keeping their heads down. there's usually a good few going off in Balbriggan on halloween night, and some more on guy fawkes.

    Is Kilbarrack too far for you ? Dublin City Council have one at Roseglen

    Kilbarrack is bit too far alright, was thinking more swords or balbriggan. I see ballymun have a festival on with fireworks display too.

    50k fine for processing fireworks ? Really?

    I'd say the fact that there's less money around is also helping as less people travelling across the border to buy them. In previous years we had them going off for weeks before the actual night. It's a horrible time of year. Roll on Thursday.

    So no fireworks in the city centre?

    Horrible time of year? What do you mean?

    Here you go SunnyDub1:

    There's some mad fine ok, not sure it's at that level though.

    Imagine, in the north with all the troubles and that, you can buy fireworks totally legally but down here in this nanny state they make them illegal.
    Madness!
