Quote from: Carnage on October 17, 2023, 01:49:23 PMIn Galway you at least have the 1AM Citylink bus to Dublin, so that'll get me home but you're still hanging around for the guts of a couple of hours after most gigs end, bar the odd smaller pub gig. Risky business in Galway these days.

During the week there's a 10:15 train but that's no good for gigs. The bus service is a joke, Bus √Čireann don't even have a Dublin to Galway route anymore.
Don't get me started on the bus's here. In order to get from Kilenny to limerick the bus goes in the opposite direction to the red cow. Then you wait for another bus that brings you to Limerick. 3 hour journey is all it is. Actually unbelievable

Auch a pile of shit. Ryan and his ilk increase carbon tax and fuel duty in order to force people out of cars, yet won't provide any alternative (going in the opposite direction in terms of ending the Dublin-Galway bus routes), so you're forced to drive and fill their coffers as a result.

Turning back toward the actual topic, the above is why I'm not going to this. Can't get home after either gig, so would be forced to stay over and it's the price of accomodation that's the killer.

Book in in Ennis, I'll drop you there after thr gig I'm sure it's cheaper

I had thought there was a slightly later option for Cork transit from here but it's been a while since I looked.  I know it's dogshit in the other direction anyway because I have attempted to go to gigs in Cork and back the same night only to have found trains/buses end at 9.00pm on a Saturday.

HOWEVER There will likely be lads driving up and back for this, I know it's a good bit out but there's definitely options.

There's a lad who might know more since I see him at Dolan's gigs regularly enough.



Looks like there has to be an actual message. Luckily, I read through anyway.

Unfortunately my secret is an ultra cheap rental in some lad's apartment. That or getting a lift back depending on the occasion.

I don't think that there's a later option. I wanted to go to that Protomartyr show in Limerick this coming Friday but there's nothing after 2030hrs .


If only I'd read this in time, there was a bus rented for Cork crew! Didn't make it up myself though.

Purge is some of their best material. Discuss

Yes, it's brilliant. Can't wait to catch em again and hopefully they play one or two off it

Ticket in the bag, elated. A night on the Godflesh beckons
