One good thing about the boom years was the influx of pretty women , well more like women who looked after their bodies.
I was talking with a foreign lady friend over recent years on this. She was rather judgemental of Irish women's curves (and she was also put out that Irish men had come to like huge knockers , which often are a consequence of obesity). Anyhow she reckoned that the influx of pretty Eastern women had caused Irish women to up their game & look after their figures more.Irish Independent, April 2007
Part of me actually agrees with the Poles. For every stylish and refined Irish woman there are at least two belligerent, brassy, ballsy broads bursting out of too-tight clothes, roaring about getting pissed or the previous night's sexual conquest.
The very same streets trodden by our drink-sodden sisters are full of stylish Polish girls, naturally beautiful, impeccably made-up, demure and soft-spoken.
With many of these immigrants now returning are we going to see a ballooning of our lady folk's bottoms ? Will the tail end of the recession result in well... large tail ends ?
