This photograph was not taken anywhere in Limerick. therefore this post is innaccurate as there is no evidence to support the theory that these children are from Limerick.

I know sticking to the truth is difficult nae impossible for someone like your good self, but you could at least make an effort to try.

Aw come on - lighten up!

And how do you know they're not from Limerick? No knives to be seen?

How do you know they are from Limerick. One does not need to be in possession of a knife in order to be identified as being from Limerick.

It is the sweeping generalisations in this and all your other posts which eat into your credibility.

You Limerick people are SOOOO touchy. I dont know where they're from, but the pic is a joke. You, know, funny?

Re my credibility - do you really think I'm suggesting Paul McCartney actually got an artifical leg as divorce settlement?

Lighten up (i know thats hard to do in Limerick!)

I think you are confusing touchiness with being sick of being attacked and ridiculed for no other reason than to make people feel better about their own shitty lives.

People who are not from Limerick might have given this "joke" of yours a raised eyebrow back in the 1980s, but then your sense of humour is probably as outdated and backward as your views on apartheid.

Welcome to the 21st Century.

Well, thanks for the invite to the 21st century, in which Limerick still tops the polls for murder, rape and gangland crime.

And this spreads beyond the deprived areas. In my time I've noticed how Young Munster fans lustily cheered a well-timed kick to the head of an opponent, while their fellow citizens at Catholic Institute cheered likewise when a visitor double-faulted.

Re: apartheid, give it a few years and South Africnas, blacks included, will look back on it as a golden age.

Actually, you should do your research on this, Limerick is only highest per capita for murders. The title for most murders is Dublin Garda division.

As for rapes, it is Donegal which has the highest number of sexual related crimes per capita according to the CSO statistics released only last week. It can't be too hard for even you to research that far back.

Rugby is a rough game. if you haven't the stomoch for it then that is your problem.

As for both Black and white looking on with fondness for apartheid, hardly, I doubt Black people have fond memories of things like Sharpeville for example.
