    Morbid enough stuff, but curious all the same.

    In my case it's mainly to find the aul fella. Look everyday. Bastard has nine lives though.

    Am I alone here?

    Having said that, if I am on the site, I might do random searches of names through the years (in my area) and see if I 'recognise' anyone, or maybe look up college lecturers from 30 years ago or older people I used to work with.

    We'll all be there one day.

    I'm starting to get long in the tooth so I've taken to checking it an odd time to see if anyone I know has died.

    I've about 20 - 30 years to go before I expect my own name will be up on it.

    I do, but I can’t find any of you, just myself.

    I check it first thing in the morning and about 5 times daily. I check 6 counties as I worked across the midlands.

    Never heard of that site. Should I join the club?

    Always check in to see if I've checked out

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,034 ✭✭✭Swaine

    Check it about once a month. There really should be a section on that site where one can leave a review of the departed.

    Yep it’d be funny alright, because let’s face it, it’s all sweetness and light when even the worst ould fecker checks out, but reading that site you’d swear every single person had a first class ticket to the pearly gates!

    It's rubbish since they turned the comments off.

    De mortuis nil nisi bonum.

    I use it all the time for work. Don’t ask😀

    Find if quite depressing after a couple of years of using it to be honest.

    I avoid obituaries like the plague. They’re too depressing. I lost too many friends and relatives in recent years, several of them way too young. The last thing I need is to be snooping around misery porn, which seems to be a national pastime.

    Once you get outside the Dublin and Cork City radio markets there’s “and that was the weather … (somber music) … and the following people have died …” … “if you’d like to listen back to the death notices, just call 1570 80 DEAD … calls cost 2.50 per min”

    Or, you can go over to the Late Late or some RTE show where they’ll have a horror story about a tragic illness.

    Yeah for some reason I would check it the odd time and go on the local page. It's a little sad seeing the homepage esp if the picture of the deceased is young

    The comments section were/are odd and would often have randomers commenting. Ending them with the likes 'from a mother', 'a grandmother'

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,951 ✭✭✭✭Strumms

    Had a glance earlier when I saw this thread…The amount of young people dying is weird, maybe it’s just a bad week or two but jeeez.
