Can't believe there isn't one already!

So to get the ball rolling; the rugby tomorrow; Leinster or Munster?

Being a Corkman, my answer's obvious
I'm not that big into it though, but everyone seems gripped by this match...

Fup you three.  Being a Dub, I'm going with Leinster.

There used to be one.

Come to think of it, that might've been on the old forum.

So...Yay!

As a Galway girl I'm more worried about the Galway/Kerry match today but I'm gonna leave aside the animosity for Kerry and hope that Munster win the rugby!!

I'm not from Dublin, so whoever is against Leinster has my vote 

Yeah there was an old thread on the forum. Twas called irish Banter and eventually became a football thread, oddly.

Might as well talk about something really Irish. What are your favourite pubs where you're from?

In Cork city it'd be An Brog, The Quad orf The Franciscan Well.

Of course the old college bar in UCC has it's appeal too!

The Bróg has lost it a bit over the years. Up to about six months ago it was still a good place to go if you were really drunk and wanted to go a bit mad but the last few times I was in there, there was a whole new crowd of people that you'd expect to find in more, shall we say, upmarket establishments.

The Well is always good. Bloody Beer Fest, eh!?

Couldn't agree more, that's why I've gone to the Quad lately, Thursdays can be good for a laugh.

Went ot the Well beer fest last Sunday, great craic but so hard to get in..

Lived in Limerick for a bit too (I get around!) and I know exactly what you mean. I have a passing interest in rugby, I'll watch it occasionally, but not that into it, but in Limerick you're a 2nd class citizen if you don't like it!

Did you see the lord mayor of limerick pleading with Munster fans to come home tonight after the game for the census?!

Ah see, that's why I went in at 4 in the afternoon!

It's a great place to go for an afternoon pint. Really liked what they did with the upstairs part too.

Quad's cool as well. As is The Oval but that's usually fairly packed.

It was terrible in Club One though. Like being drunk inside a giant, purple bruise. I much prefer The Works, even though it'll never be as good as Dirty last year  
It can be a decent night out - I go every couple of weeks so it doesn't get boring.

Freakscene has gone downhill since it left the Savoy, but still has its moments. I was at the opening night in its new venue which was great craic but now it's full of 1st years. Or am I getting too old for this shit?!

Yeah upstairs in the Well was nice, I was there too! The Oval's nice but a bit pricey...

So those of you in Cork, what do ye do? I'm final year UCC myself, English and History. Hope to do the film masters next year

Hello. I am Irish (from up north, Co. Derry) and even though I've lived in Scotland for 12 years I'll always be Irish. In fact I'm considering moving back over to the green green grass of home in the next year or two, depends on what happens with work.

Fantastic Rugby game - a deserving victory for the boys in Red - did ye see Lansdowne - it seemed the entire crowd were wearing the Munster colours!

However I'm not even going to talk about the Galway game (*hangs head in shame*)

Oh its been going downhills since Sir Henry's!

There are a lot of first years alright. And none of them seem all that drunk. This generation, it worries me so it does.

Maybe you're my shadow
Dirty was actually kind of shit too but it was a fun kind of shit. And is it me or has Freakscene become incredibly smoky of late?! I also don't like these emo kids. They offend me with their low pants and ridiculous hair styles.

I didn't watch the match but town seemed fairly busy alright. Nice weather and all!

EDIT: Reading over this post, I think I'm too old for this shit as well.

Fermanagh man myself, although currently working in Co. Derry. Looking forward to the football and hurling championships starting soon - nothing like the thud of a football or clash of the ash on a balmy summer's evening to bring out the Irishman in me. Might even start a thread in 'Grandstand' for the duration...
