Its all quite in Newtownabbey/Shore Rd.  Saying that, I spent the 12th weekend up in Portstewart.

I was reading one article online where I'm pretty sure the writer was under the impression that they were two differnet places, saying something like 'the joint entry from the cities of Londonderry and Derry in Northern Ireland'.

I live in County Donegal, where anybody who wants to be as far away as possible from the 12th Of July marches flees that weekend, After reading up on the riots on the net I'm glad I was out of the country this year, by all accounts Donegal was swarmed by people getting out of the North when it all started to get hairy.

Talking about festivals, it is the weekend of the 10th annual Glasgowbury festival in the wilds outside Draperstown.  This "small but MASSIVE" festival has tirelessly supported local music, and this year is no different with quite a few of the local bands flirting with greatness on the bill, as well as a headlining slot from Dublin's finest Fight Like Apes:

For more info, clicky here

Also, the Open House Festival in Belfast has really surpassed itself this year, with an entire week of top headliners from the alt.country/indie folk genre with everyone from Mumford and Sons to Modest Mouse playing between 6-12 September. 

Again, for info click y'all!

Finally, whose off to Belsonic next month?  Got our tickets for Kasabian, Florence and Biffy - can't wait!

Glasgowbury and Belsonic are two festivals through various circumstances that I have never been able to attend, and probably won't manage this year either. It's a shame as a lot of my friends are often playing at or involved in the organisation of both, and I'd love to see Florence and the Machine.

I feel some sense of guilt that I've never attended any of these, mostly since no-one has ever put a ticket in my hand and physically brought me there. Although not being a big music fan means that for most of the featured acts, I wouldn't go to see them if I was on fire and lived in a tree. Or something.

Folks I work with are excited about Belsonic though and one girl raves about her Fr Ted-esque camping trip one year to the Rathlin Festival. I should be in attendance at the All-Ireland Fleadh in Cavan this year though. Fiddle-dee-dee!

Ok maybe I'm a little bias since im in northern ireland as a serving soldier but I really *really* dont like the place. Admitaddley i dont go to Belfast that often but I relish every oppurtunity to go back to London. NI just feels so backward i mean have u seen ballynahinch? My god undeveloped doesn't do it justice.
And then theres the fact that EVERYWHERE shuts down on a sunday evening. Every heard of a 24hr store? Or maybe an off license open till late?
Hell what about trains!? The only way from Downpatrick to Belfast is to go on some rickety old bus that feels like the bottom is about to fall out and we'll all have to run along the ground.
And then theres phone signal issues, travel about a mile away from a town or villiage and you can forget ringing or receiving txt messages.
Sorry if this sounds rude but thats my experience of northern ireland.

I think when you say 'a little bias', you actually mean 'a lot wrong'

(Except for the trains - you're right about that. Maybe youse lads could knock together a few train tracks to the West in your spare time?)

funny cause it's true. and by the way over here we call under developed "rustic" or "authentic"

I think the only real problem mate is the bit of the country you posted in. There are other areas which are much better but unfortunately there are still idiots who make it unfeasible for you to visit which is a real shame.

Yeah, Ballynahinch is an absolute hole - But that's like judging the whole of England on Middlesborough. Or the whole of Wales on Merthyr Tydfil. Or the whole of Scotland on, er, well, the whole of Scotland!

And to be fair to Ballynahinch, it is not only within half an hour of both Belfast and Lisburn city centres but also places of outstanding beauty such as the Mournes and Strangford Lough; which includes great days out such as Castle Ward and Tollymore Forest Park.

What do you mean backward, Ballnahinch has a Lidle.

As for everything shutting down on a Sunday, not stricly true. Compared to the 24 hour laws now active in England it is a bit behind, but prior to that, bars had longer Sunday trading hours than most places, not closing til midnight. And you can get a carryout too, just so long a you go to the right places.

The sunday opening times are nowhere near as strict as they were. If my local tesco had its way it would open everyday of the week, all year round. It even pulled a sly trick a few years ago opening on Christmas day at 6am to 10am.

Wheres good to go out in belfast on a friday night?

When I was a student we always went out on a monday so Ive no idea where to go. The M-Club is shit and over priced and I think the Odyssey is too out of the way.

Any suggestions?

Depends on what you're looking for, but Lavery's is always a pretty sound bet, as is the Menagerie.Cathedral Quarter also has plenty on most weekends.
