Limerick gets a very bad press, and even here in Dublin you'll get hardchaws who won't go within an ass's roar of the place in the interests of self-preservation. In fairness, head-for-head, there isn't much difference in the crime-stat stakes between the two cities... at least not according to a recent feature in The Irish Times.
Years back, in the old mod days, I visited Limerick on a couple of occasions. While there, I happened to bump into a few fellow scooterists, and the difference between the crowd you had in Limerick and the crowd you had in Dublin was remarkable. The Limerick lads were sound as pounds. In Dublin they'd rob the eye out of your head at the time. A lot of them, anyway. Scootering solidarity? Forget it.
Next time you are watching out for the Boys and Girls in Blue trying to zap you for going a few klicks over the speed limit on a dual carriageway, spare a thought for the Limerickonians above who steal cars and drive them dangerously around housing estates in broad daylight, post their feats on You Tube, but cannot - for the life of them - attract the attention of our wonderful gardai.
Is there a Dunkin' Donuts in Limerick?
