Dublin... Is a fucking shithole

I remember a few years ago landing in Atlanta on a US domestic flight and the captain said over the PA: “Apologies ladies and gentlemen it appears they weren’t expecting us and we have to hold here for a few minutes while they get the gate ready.”

A passenger said “this is an airport, we’re on one of those big shiny things that flies. What the hell were they expecting?”
who was the passenger to say that, michael mcintyre?

A single mum was dragged from her home and jailed for not paying her TV licence in what has been branded “a major scandal”.

Two gardai took the woman from the house in Donegal in front of her young son after she had failed to pay the €450 fine.


The mother, who had paid off €212 of the balance, was then taken with the officers by taxi to the Dochas Centre at Dublin’s Mountjoy prison – more than 200km away, at a cost of €300.

She said: “I couldn’t believe it when gardai called to my home and told me I was “for up the road”. I was terrified and that distraught that I didn’t even have time to put my coat on.

“I had never been given any warning letter. I was doing my best and I had almost half the fine paid.

"My 11-year-old son was crying his eyes out to see his mother being taken away in a Garda car. Luckily my daughter is older and could look after him.”


The woman said the jail staff were more than nice but the ordeal left her terrified, adding: “I had never been in a prison in my life before. Some of the women were trying to calm me down.”



She was fined for not having a license and was dragged off to jail for the non payment of a fine for not having a TV license. Had she a TV license she would not have been sent to prison.
Now in your opinion which is the greater crime to society, someone having multiple types of drugs in quantity, as well as wads of cash and drug paraphernalia, or a single mum who didn't get a TV license. Take yer time.


You will get months of notices for not paying your licence and then be notified of a date in court.

She obviously ignored all this.

Awful for her child to witness this but open your mail
