Go for it!

It’s a free market.

Can’t see much of a demand though, what with the ban on smoky fuels.

Shandon St. is rich in diversity and multiculturism. Who voted for it but those sorry dickheads from the leafy suburbs of the Southside. Known as Nimbys, NOT IN MY BACKYARD.
You are invited to embrace it

Shandon Street is what North Main Street would be with open shops and life. I actually don't mind a stroll up there in the early afternoon/daytime, it has a nice pan global ethnic feel to it. Took a stroll up there recently and saw a lad throwing empty cans at a wall, these are the sights you just don't get to see on the southside.

Ever noticed that Mahon is an anagram of Ham-on?

Which is how one would pronounce Jamon, the Spanish word for ham.

And there are Spanish people living in Mahon.

Coincidence?

Also an anagram of "Man-Ho" which means male prostitute.
