I am just wondering if people were happier in the 80s before the Celtic tiger.
In the 80s there was no pressure to have two or three properties, no pressure to have a big car or a couple with no kids buying a four bed house.
You could have a few pints and drive home,
Gay Byrne was hosting the late late show,
You could watch the football on TV for free.
Fish and chips were a treat on Fridays.
People’s houses were homes with an open door for callers.
Tayto and King Crisps were great on a sandwich with a lump of cheese.
Most homes had a parent in it when returning from school.
People did not moan and groan everyday –they just got on with it.
Anymore positives from the 80s??
I was only born in the late 80s but listening to the stories I wonder if people were happier.
