Exactly, there was a great atmosphere. What is wrong with people that you want to choke some random small towns, at short notice, in favour of a day out at Croke Park?
Of course the road from Mayo to Dublin doesn't go through any small towns whatsoever.

You are the self-proclaimed expert, you should know.
You've the local knowledge. You tell me. Does the N5 go through any small towns?

I wouldn't presume to lecture such a cartographical colossus as yourself.

By the way, is the N5 the only way to Dublin from Mayo?

Thanks. Admitting I'm right is a start for you.

You'll have noticed from a post I made on another thread that I mentioned the N60. Now, seeing as you say there's more than way from Mayo to Dublin, I'll take it you have the N60 in mind. Do tell us, with your unrivalled local knowledge, does this wonderful, wide road go through any small towns itself?

Hell, if you were so inclined and from a southerly part of Mayo, you could even go to Galway first and travel to Dublin along the whole length of the M6. Now I'll take the lead here with my local knowledge of routes out of Galway. Galway is not nearer to Dublin than Limerick is. In fact you'll find it's a full 70 miles further away.

Convenience, eh?

Wow, that would dilute the match traffic, wouldn't it? See, 3 different ways for the match traffic to go, and that is only the supporters who don't take the train which further dilutes things. Add to that the fact that the N5 is a National Primary Route with only a handful of towns on it, some so small they don't even have traffic lights and don't cause delays and you are laughing.

But of course traffic will all merge on the way to Limerick. Have you got this bit yet?

Oh, but what about this huge amount of extra support Mayo would bring to Croke Park, you know all the people who can't go now that it's in Limerick?

And tell me this, does all traffic from Mayo merge onto the same road at Kinnegad when coming to Dublin, or does it not? Have you got this bit yet?

That's a motorway? Kinnegad is bypassed now isn't it?

Ah Jebus, you played the old primary school classic.

What am I supposed to do now, I've forgotten?

I'd suggest you start making tracks for Limerick. Couldn't leave yourself too much time.

The irony coming from a Dublin supporter is fantastic.


BTW was this you on your way to Waterville?

An alleged restaurant burglar claims he became trapped inside a fridge while looking for toilets, the High Court in Belfast heard today.

Sean McAvoy told police he got lost inside The Bank Bar and Bistro in Newry, Co Down.

Aw diddums. Dublin supporter being late insult. That cuts deep, real deep. Don't go all primary school on me, now. If it's any consolation to you I'll do my best to drag my coke-addled body out of Quinn's and down Clonliffe Road after the Aston Villa-Hull match on Sunday in time for kick-off at Croke Park. Woops, nearly forgot - throw in - it's a throw-in in Gaaaah.

Given that you think the road from Dublin to Waterville goes through Newry, you're definitely right to be worried about getting from wherever in Mayo you live to Limerick. Hint: don't go through Derry.

You are the one advising about leaving enough time to get to Limerick. And then you get all upset when the obvious home run is struck on that one.

Terribly upset.
