Right that’s enough nominations
Time for a shortlist everyone pick one town from your county
And than some voting
For Antrim I nominate Moss side

Antrim-mossside
Down-
Derry
Armagh
Tyrone
Fermanagh
Monaghan
Cavan

Ulster champs make it through to nationals

You forgot Donegal. Are there not any kips in Donegal.

Been all over Donegal not a bad town in it
Bundoran

Never been to Lifford, Carrigart, Raphoe or Convoy?

Letterkenny is a bit of shithole. Always fights every weekend and some scumbags running about it

OK, so after a few days from starting the thread, I've decided to put up a poll based on the nominations made over the last 11 pages. Clearly members of this forum think that quite a few spots in Ireland, north & south, are sh*tholes with over 60 places nominated. Some places received multiple nominations however and so to determine a final list I've drawn it up from those getting at least three nominations, which left it with 13 contenders which is a bit much to put to a final poll so some trimming is needed. Lurgan, Lisburn & Larne, while receiving 3 nominations each, were countered with opinions as to why they are not **that** bad and so have been left off the final list. Also while there were several points made about a lot of parts of the west of Ireland, it's just too vague and too large an area to really nail it down so it too has been left off. That takes it down to 9, and as an executive decision I've decided to merge the nominations of Dervock & Mosside given the short distance between the two places. So that's eight locations on the ballot in somewhat alphabetical order as follows...

  • Bundoran, Co. Donegal
  • Castlederg, Co. Tyrone
  • Coalisland, Co. Tyrone
  • Dervock & Mosside, Co. Antrim
  • "The area between Connolly Station & Croke Park", Dublin City
  • Kilkeel, Co. Down
  • Portadown, Co. Armagh
  • Rathfriland, Co. Down
...and some footnotes.

* The poll will be open until early on Thursday morning (Irish time) and canvassing is wholly permitted! The winning location shall be awarded the First Annual Anthony Fearon Award For Outstanding Achievement In The Field Of Excellence.

* Also I will take on a suggestion earlier in this thread and forward the posts made here on to Tourism Ireland, Failte Ireland and the NITB so they can hopefully be that little bit better informed about where not to encourage tourists to go for the sake of Ireland's international image.

* Finally, negotiations are currently in progress with the TV3 Group (Ireland) to sell the idea of "Ireland's Biggest Sh*tholes" to be made into a programme or series of programmes. If successful, the money from selling the rights shall all be put towards a massive p*ss-up at a yet to be decided location for all GAAboard posters to be invited to (except those banned by ziggysego and/or Mod3).

Parts of the three paragraphs above you've just read aren't to be taken seriously - but not all of it!  ;)

Interesting there's no nominations for anywhere south of the Galway/Dublin line. Funny that!

Ulster has the majority of nominations.
None of the nominations would be a hurling area either

Is Dervock not ballycastle territory? Or is it Ballycastle that’s dervock territory?

Just in case some posters don’t know where the words “red neck” and “hillbilly” in the USA originate from. If you visit the aforementioned towns you will see some correlation and residents character.
It’s really striking

You could just imagine a local bairn on a banjo a la Deliverance I’d you went for a stroll through Mosside!

I was going to mention moss side has one of the highest incest rates in Europe but I can’t find the source again so let’s leave it to speculation.

I read that myself but it applied to Dervock. Think it was in the 1950's.

Most of the gaaboard seems to be from the North. Do the southern lads not have internet or is there another gaa forum out there that the southern ones use?
