    Default Rathkeale......an observation...wow

    I was on some business in Limerick today and found myself by accident in Rathkeale.

    I have never in my life seen such a display of high value cars being driven by what looked to me like the "travellers". I could not believe what I saw today, we are talking about "high-end-top of the range motors", all very new looking on UK plates

    Ranger Rovers Vogues
    BWM X5s fully loaded
    Porches Carrera's
    Hummer's
    BMW 7 Series
    BMW 8 Series
    Pathfinders
    BMW X6s

    There were lots of them driving around the town and up into some of the housing estates that looked like they were taken over, massive caravans parked in gardens, and out on the roads...

    It was like another world and I really could not believe my eyes. Of course it was also pretty jammed with Transits and Hiace's..

    That town looks like its got a bit of a problem..is it the hive..?

    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you
    down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    It was jaw dropping stuff..I never in my life saw anything like it, it was like the town was taken over, and lots of houses either barred up windows of packed with caravans and top of the range cars..

    I did see a garda station but it too looked barred up..

    Lawless..???

    Maybe 50 Cent and his entourage came to say a prayer at the holy stump?.

    They're all come home for Christmas from far afield

    Drive through the town in June and there will be no comparison as to the numbers of our travelling friends in the fair town of Rathkeale

    Yep,

    Eskerman, If you were a cat, you would have used up one of your lives today.

    Had a similar experience when my wife decided to educate me about Fassaroe near Bray. T'was like Mad Max 2.

    Well its most unlikely I will be heading in there again, I didn't feel comfortable at all, wanted to get to a Chemist and decided to bail out and try somewhere else.

    I never knew that a town could have been so taken over..?

    Must be a no-go area when their all on the triple vintage..

    It was pedal to the metal for me big time..
