I have as well. Friend of mine got a box off a young fella recently but he was fairly pissed so I don't know what exactly happened.

Then there's that Spanish lad who got destroyed by a load of them. There's a few fucking mega-scumbags there getting their apprenticeships from the older flesh-wastes in the area, hanging out drinking cans and being disgusting heaps but I've never gotten any significant hassle from anyone in three years of living here.

I lived on Evergreen Road before that and passed through Douglas St. everyday and never had any issues. I think it looks grim and has a pretty manky vibe at times with the droves of shit-heaps that congregate in the area. The network of dark alleys and car park create a pretty dangerous landscape as well I suppose.

Who knows what can happen though? That youngish fella who asks for money for the "bus" every time he passes would probably be the most negative aspect of living there for me. Christ, I really dislike that man.

Small guy. Pretty skinny. Bit rough but hams it up to try subtly intimidate people. You know, imply the potential of danger. He's an alcoholic I reckon. Some people say he's a junkie but I don't know. Haven't seen him in a bit actually.

Went to school on south terrace a few years ago.
Walked up around the area to spar and the bookies, and often headed home that way as well.Also done a bit of painting in the car park a few years before that.Wouldn't be down around there often now but a few times.Wouldn't really say its a no go area tbh.

Was in work, talking with a guy who lives in the area, once you get to Sullivan's Quay, you're in "no man's" land in terms of the gangs of youth in the area.

Anyone have any stories or know of any linked to the area?

Mr. H.

What he said. Parked on Cove St behind the Fas building on Fri night. After reading a few comments here i was extra vigilant but didnt see a sinner down there. Same when i came back after dark.

Like someone else said it can attract a few can drinking winos and knacks but to say its a no go zone is stupid.

All I heard about that area is that there was a guy arrested for wanking in a house window at passers-by.
