Local TD at Your Local Pub (3)

from agnes in john benny moriarty's in dingle;

Drink Drive Limit Drives Me Up The Walls

Stockie and myself are still stuck in Dingle as I think that the guards might get him after his pint and BnP (see this).For my part a few small powers have killed my chances of driving, not that I could as I never learned to drive - damn all cars around here in the fifties.

We blame the politeecians.

I officially give up on this list (see list 1 and list 2). If you want to know more about politicians and their clinics, just look it up yourself. Why?

The countryside is being killed stone cold dead by stubborn, single-minded TDs who don't even have to drive themselves! One drink. One drink and I am a murdering bastard. Wipe out innocents in Limerick with guns and there's no problem. One drink. One drink.

I give up compiling my list because I got as far as Eamon O Cuiv and his list of clinics. Pubs, Pubs Pubs. Not all are pubs I admit, but why edit such a wonderful declaration. A declaration that the pub is the centre of social interaction in rural Ireland.

Want to see the list? Here it is, verbatim. Don't worry if you don't understand Irish, this is (almost) a list of pubs.

Yeah, everyone should be allowed drink and drive, who cares if you kill someone.

also, the scanners and boy racers should be allowed drive home from their raves after taking drugs, its only fair!!

2 pints ? I'm not allowed 2 pints? over an hour or two? No luas/dart/taxi/bus/cycle lane around here. Maybe you want me to stock up on beer and wine and drink at home.
A pint of plain is your only man.
