Love the place.

Been three times (mostly Dublin/Drogheda/Belfast) but it's a cliché, but I feel a common bond with Irish more so than English people.

People are lovely all across these islands, but there's definitely an at ease/easy going-ness about Scots and Irish and if stereotyping, English are a bit more reserved, in my experience.

Would love to see more of the north and Donegal just magical. Try my Gàidhlig there as well, as I can understand a fair chunk of Gaelige Ulaidh. I'm huge fan of trad music too, and its quite big in Scotland and we have our own too. I enjoy singing too and doing Scottish Gaelic covers of Irish songs and vice-versa or singing them in Gaelige or trying to e.g fáilte -fowwwlcha and in Scottish Gaelic fàilte - faaaaahhhhhlcha.

The GAA culture is fantastic too. We've got shinty in Scotland, but GAA is huge and all the counties that follow is fantastic.


Belfast and not for those reasons e.g Celtic/Rangers ; but the layout of the city, the accent/language spoken, looks even, gritty but friendly people too who were hilarious. I've never felt so 'home' and similar to Glasgow. And nothing to do with the flegs, but the people - just fantastic, hospitable and funny people I met from all sides.

The Irish, a great bunch o' lads.

You're likely to find an empty box of Quality Street filled with a sewing kit or other random shite in most houses.

I travel a fair bit. Talking about Dublin here. It's the same as Sydney in terms of rent and cost of living, more expensive than Madrid.

Paris is very expensive. Never been to Edinburgh or Milan

What do I hate about Ireland? The fact that I've never been there, and dearly would love to. During an All Black Tour if possible, just to hear the deathly quiet of Croke Park when the kicker is getting ready to attempt a penalty, and off to a pub for Guiness and craic afterwards, finished with a whiskey or two.
