I nominated Rathfriland in the previous thread and see no need for an upgrade.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Tyrone - coaisland. hands down

Well put it beside respective county and re post new list
But their should be a plausible explanation for your selection

For Armagh I nominate Portadown.
Antrim - Harryville in Ballymena (where they picketed that chapel over the Dunloy parade)
Down - Ballynahinch (No Pope, no pinch, no Paddy's Day, in the town of Ballynahinch, they say)
Dublin - That place you walk through from Connelly Station to Croke Park, the place with the flats that look like prisons.
Other counties, no opinion.

I still think that this thread is stupid but the idea that part of Dublin City is remarkably bad is coming from people who either donít know a lot of the city or have never lived in the city, one or the other. Thereís much more delapadated and poverty-stricken parts of Dublin.

Lisburn is Antrims pick for me. It's like living in 17th century middle England. As I said before: a bigoted hellhole.

Around James St (and I imagine further into The Liberties) is rough enough too.
Some outlying areas such as Ballymun & Kilbarrack arenít places youíd want to be knocking about either.
Around Croke Park is a kip though. And itís strange as building a massive stadium has a positive impact on the local community and is an immediate catalyst for regeneration and investment. Generally, the surrounding area becomes a hotbed of GAA (almost overnight) as well. Croke Park is probably just a one off.
