    Baaanaaaanaaaaa


    Carrick is classed as south Co. Tipp.. so not Waterford CC's problem..

    But sure they are all as bad as each other :rolleyes:

    Also Waterford (City) and sick of the roads, my car is shaking itself apart. Must get a car with a suspension next time. Carrick ain't too bad with the new piece of road there outside mooncoin, but as for Portlaw PPC, I was cycling down that feckin hill into the town (from Kill), and my fillings fell out.

    Anyway, what it the point of this board, are we all going to rejoice in our waterford-i-ness and arrange trips to the seaside or something ?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 88,980 ✭✭✭✭ mike65


    I'm a little sceptical about these boards myself, and I'm a Mod!

    Still as it is here, I'm sure thier are a few topics that we can moan in unison about.

    Like why is Waterford the forgotten city, Galway
    everyone loves, Cork you can't ingnore even though you'd like to. Hell even Limerick is'nt as badly perceived as was once the case, yet Waterford is'nt thought about at all.

    Its worth noting that when these boards were first created
    the other 4 big cities were up and running together, we were an afterthought along with the rest! And that is syptomatic of our place in life. Major Chains will have outlets in places like Navan
    or Portlaoise before they arrive down here (don't ask me to suply specific names!).

    If RTE ever point a camera in our direction its for some bad news story, the roads are crap if Galway had needed a second river crossing they'd have had it built decades back but government ministers don't push for development
    in the Deise as they don't know anything about the place!
    I will excempt Mary Harney from my ire as she alone has made Waterford part of here general itinery. At last we have a FF minister (the first in almost 50 years!) but will he deliver or be allowed to?

    I could go on....:mad:

    boo to the ff waterford politician

    he stuck his head in the sand for his last term of office and got voted back for all the "good" he did. i expect nothing less than the same high standard of work this time round.

    even killkenny or south kerry have more noteworthy politicians than here.

    i would have elected the professional clown if i did the vote fixin this time round. :) that would have put waterford on the map and we would be gettin more stuff.

    <boy - i'm tired after that rant>

    No offence but Portlaw is quite possibly the worst place in Ireland I have ever been.
    Havent been there in years though, now that the grandparents have passed on.
    But God I hated having to go down there.

    The bright side, I suppose, is that Waterford is not Dublin.

    Nice to see that there are actually other boards users in Waterford.

    At last another NY Pie Co fan. I am addicted to that place. Nothing else like that around anywhere (cept NYC) and I can't understand why ?

    Did try to eat a chilli dog after a heavy night in the Kazbah once though, looked like an extra from a George Romero Movie afterwards. Maybe thats why.

    the yuppie pubs have no problems doing that. especially if its a "late bar". clubs are worse tho - does anybody ever check these places lines and gas???? bleuuhggghhhh

    About the whole Waterford being a forgotten city thing. I don't think anyone would disagree.

    Have you read the weekly article by 'The Phoenix' in the News & Star? A weekly guide to how Waterford has been shafted the previous week! :(

    Still things are a lot better than they were a few years back; the place is starting to look well. And they're doing up the north quays...

    We are the worst race on the island for marketing ourselves though, who would guess that there's a F1 powerboat race on in Waterford at the moment?

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 88,980 ✭✭✭✭ mike65


    Hi merlante and welcome to boards.ie! :)

    About the power boats, you're right. If this were happening in Galway the national radiowaves would be festooned with ads for it, along with guff about the craic and the strains of that Galway Bay tune in the background.

    We have always been the worlds worst
    at marketing ourselves as a desirable place to be.

    Desie folk are too damn self-effacing.

    Mike.

    Damn straight! The Irish Times covered the Galway arts festival every single day, with editorials that even went as far as to say "if Ireland were a woman, then Galway would be it's erogenous zone!" They're pitching the place as the San Francisco of Ireland, fastest growing city in europe etc. etc. It's even calling itself the third city in Ireland, sheerly because Limerick is having problems extending its city boundaries.

    Meanwhile you have dubs asking if there is a Waterford town? I suppose you have to give their (galway) politicians and marketing people credit.
