    i must eventually get to one of these all-mighty “shin-digs”, but do the admins and moderators handle the financial details for the bar? :P finger pointed at you ronny ” rich-boy” southwood :D

    It would be great to get to one again. I keep saying that I will, but something always gets in the way. Be it a place to stay, college assignments, paying to get down to Dublin, etc. I hope to be able to sort something out! Got any dates in mind, Dave?

    Feck off! Water is free to matter how much you have of it! You’ll have to cough up the money yourself, but I’m sure you’ll be able to manage that once you’re developing triple A titles in Derry. ;)

    There are two O’Neills.

    The one that is actually a great pub.
    And the one that is the tourists pub which constantly stinks of food.

    Mahaffys is easier, never any confusion as to which one!!

    food only on request…

    Max asks which O’Neills and no-one answers

    Thats my excuse and I’m sticking to it

  • #26486

    Or look at the post that actually made the O’Neill’s suggestion that month…

    how about O’Neills on Pearse Street and then we can move onto more dancing venue later…?

    But that post was BEFORE Max’s question…so my point is still valid.

    (argument over, I am clearly correct as usual!)

    No, no-one replied to max’s question because it was redundant as it was already explained. Plus, Max turned up to the correct location, so it was proven that no answer was required.

    check mate.

    ps. you’ll not win this one, I have time on my hands to out argue you :)

    voila the map..see http://www.dublinpubscene.com/thepubs/mahaffys_map.html

    apparently Mahaffys is named after a professor from Trinity College.

    that is my little snippet of info for the day..

    Many thanks for the map, hope you didnt waste too much time getting it :) I used to live in mahaffy’s (TCD head), but you werent to know that (forums should come with a sarcasm indicator).

    J. P. MAHAFFY, berkeley Professor of Philosophy and Junior Dean 1871-1872.
    His proud legacy lives on as CS undergrads get kicked out of the SU every evening at six and head across the road to get pissed in Mahaffy’s…maybe moving on the Doyles for the late bar if they’ve any money. Monday Tuesday…etc. Happy days.

    (my turn for the Stag next w/e, tho’ :lol:)

    I can’t hardly be punished for failing to turn up time & again, due to circumstances entirely out of my control :cry: … ’tis been a hard year on all fronts.

    All that said, if you make it by -say- around the 15th of Dec, that should be time aplenty to grow the beard to Santa-esque proportions, tho’ :D
