Would ya get away with a mankini in Ballybunion?


Hiya, it’s Rosealeen right here in Ballydesmond. Dangerous cess to my married associates and the way in which they are saying, “Oh Rosealeen, I’ve a pal and he’d be very good for you,” after which they wheel out some magnificence they present in a garbage bin in downtown Scartaglin.

A pal of mine really did wheel out one man, they’d him in a purchasing trolley, he was so drunk. So it was rolling-my-eyes-time once more when my cousin stated she had a person for me, just for her to set me up with this Colm feen who’d remind you of Liam Neeson — earlier than he received previous. You wouldn’t say he was thrilling — poor Colm is as straight and slim as a thin heterosexual, however I’m as glad to have a little bit of maturity in my life, to be sincere with you.

Certain, hasn’t he booked us a vacation in Sardinia, which is sort of a posh Sicily and I’m on my final nerve with fear that I’ll seem like the Wild Lady of Boherbue in entrance of all the thin Italians. I used to be going to get my eyebrows performed in Maura’s beautician place on the town, it’s known as Pretty Lidz, Ladz. However then I assumed: “What would she know concerning the newest fashions, trapped within the Ballydesmond bubble.”

How can I inform her that I must go someplace else, for the spot of sophistication?

C’mere, what’s the story with Ballybunion? The previous doll’s birthday is arising subsequent weekend and he or she stated she needs a shock. That’s the very last thing a lad needs to listen to from his previous doll. It’s unhealthy sufficient we have now to purchase one thing, we have now to consider it as nicely. Worse once more, she says she doesn’t need the type of shock the place I bounce out from behind a door in a mankini and shout “cop a load of that lady.” And there was I pondering she loved it final 12 months. The previous dolls — will we ever actually know them?

Anyway, I’m going to deliver her away for a weekend, however I couldn’t be coping with West Cork or the Ring of Kerry gaffs, as a result of they’re filled with knobs down from Dublin and it could price you over €100 for a rake of pints. My mate, Budgie says that Ballybunion is the enterprise, and I stated is it not filled with eejits from Limerick and he stated it’s, however they’re alright when you recover from the accent. I seemed it up on-line there and the primary factor Ballybunion has going for it’s golf. You in all probability don’t know my previous doll Audrey, however I can’t think about her doing a cartwheel as a result of I introduced her to one of many prime 10 hyperlinks programs on this planet, no matter meaning. Do you suppose I ought to go for it and convey her to Ballybunion?
