Keelings

As a regular in keelings for Sunday carvery, was disappointed to see group of young lads being asked to leave if they didn't buy drinks. They had all eaten a meal + were staying to watch the match but were told in no uncertain terms to go if they were not going to get drinks. (they eat there regular...

Re: Posters on hearse road

I'm sorry but they depict a fully formed baby, at 12 weeks a baby looks + measures nothing like the poster. Let women decide on their own life and I'd imagine its traumatic enough without having to travel to England.

Posters on hearse road

Hi is it just me or are pro life posters on hearse rd absolutely dreadful and completely biased, surely they would have to pass a suitability test before they are put up.

Teenage parties

Will parents please be aware these parties are just an excuse to get drunk for most of the teenagers. Two girls in my estate last weekend were absolutely locked at 8pm, kept falling down (lucky not to bang their heads) , knickers, bra, all on public display for all to see, guards came + I hope took ...

Re: Experiences with Community College

In reply to last post, links96 appears to be a student not a teacher + a very articulate and nice young lady, + as a parent of teenagers they talk ( maybe not to parents ) but to each other so I would take all she says as true !!

Re: Donabate Community College

Hi all, just to say maybe tables don't account for students who just didn't study of which I know 3! They would tell you themselves they could + should have done more , this is not the schools fault!! Parents and teachers can only try to influence students to study, you can't make them. These lads a...

Yes they were teenagers indeed, but I'm tempted to call them a lot of unsavoury characters who created havoc around portrane all day and night! Robbed a load of bins burnt them in the field and had a rave, with more waste of gardai time and energy, while upsetting a lot of people in the process ! Wh...

The problem with the first year parent teacher meetings was the PARENTS who selfishly spent 20 to 25 minutes with teachers , I'm sorry but anything over 5 minutes is completely wrong when you have so many parents to see!
