Well these days Dublin extends as far as Kildare, Portlaoise, Drogheda and Gorey... So you are an honourary Dub at least.

I've been living in TB Heights/Drive for nearly 4 years now and I really like the area. before that I was living in... Bencoolen St (2 years), Siglap (3 years), Bayshore (1 year), Serangoon Rd (1 year), Upper East Coast Rd (2 years), Clemenceau Ave Nth (6 mths) and Bishan (1 mth)... It's good to settle down sort of.

Contact the Irish Embassy ASAP. The booze will be flowing generously that day...

I read the story about the train drivers and I was thinking ah jaysus here we go again. I will have to face all that when I get back in July.

I saw the snow alright, just looking out the window here in Singapore, looks unlikely we will have snow here, today anyway....

did you live here?


Not yet! Heading out as an intern with a law firm in the summer, so really looking forward to escaping a rain-sodden July and August in Roscommon! Hoping to relocate long-term for a myriad of reasons, with the income tax rates, standard of living and crime rate contributing somewhat! Are there many Irish out there?

Actually it's on Wednesday night (12th March) at the Hyatt.

So. if I were you, I'd call the Irish Embassy at 6238 7616 to confirm your attendance. BTW, are you a member of the Irish Business Association?

You are welcome to left corner forward, the most sought after position is the goalie :D
