Things you miss about Ireland, stuff that has changed and gone forever.

What do you miss?


For me, the biggest loss is the sense of community, the village that would have 10 pubs, 3 shops and you did your week's shop there. It may seem trivial but it did seem better, getting a 99 after mass on a Sunday, the smell of turf from the range.

The complete lack of fucking effeminate men, and angry feminists.
Travelling on a bus and striking up a conversation.
Having the time to fish in the local river for half a day.
Roads free of speed cameras and tolls.
Big families. Relatives visiting more often.
Sitting in a smokey bar as a child on holidays with my parents, , falling asleep as the National Anthem comes on.

10 pubs in a three-shop town?
I reckon you'd be missing most of your liver function as much as anything else!
