There is no where good to skate in this city.
The skate parks are shit and the roads treacherous.
If it's not the dodgy cobble-stones then it is the Gardaí being dicks.
Anyway, for those of you who skate - you should go out and buy Pretty Girls Make Graves three albums.
The perfect music to listen to when you are out on your board.
Probably the best band Matador Records has ever signed (yes, even better than the God's themselves - Interpol)!
Unfortunately, they split about a year ago.
I think they actually only ever played here once.
There was about 30 of us watching them in a tent in Oxegen back in 2006.
Fucking amazing set by one of the truly best bands of my generation.
Named after The Smiths song of the same name (which itself was named after a quote from Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums)
If you have no interest in what I have just said, then I implore you to:
Buy Pretty Girls Make Graves' three albums.
Stick them on your ipod (or something similar).
Buy a skateboard.
Then come back and thank me.
