Bonos birthplace


Bonos birthplace 10 Cedarwood Rd.


A fine house on Park Ave. D4(Nothing to do with Bono)


Well the high point of my day was meeting the next door neighbor of Bono when he was a lad growing up in Glassneven.
A nice young lad she said,you will be glad to hear.
He often asked if he was making too much noise when the band started playing.
"Your grand son, it sounds great" She knew that while they were playing music that they would not be into other trouble. "Life is all give and take son"
Seems like his music got better.

Earlier on in the day I spent the guts of an hour trying for my first fare.
When I finally found a place at the end of the queue for Heuston I had to pull up on the box junction which is quite a bit back from the station. A second car pulled over behind me then a third car turned in and left the back of his car blocking the traffic.
The blue flashing light came on the scene and took our 3 licences away for processing.
While he was doing this the guys behind us drove around us and joined the queue for the station.
When he had finished issuing tickets he said.

"Drive away you now,don't join in the Queue".

That was bad enough but I saw 5 empty cars driving into the station to pick up fares where the trains arrive when I was going past, an illegal move, Just like the 2 taxis parked at the entrance while the drivers tout for passengers as they come out of the station,still they get away with it so why not do it?
Its a bit like having you meter running for 5 minutes before you pick up a fare.
Or indeed using many of the other scams which are becoming common place.

I saw the intrepid pair from the taxi regulators office mooching around the Foster place rank.
Why they are not there at 2 AM to intercept the scammers who negotiate much higher fares when its happy home time.

Dublins latest gangster was laid to rest today!
Saw the hearse go by...So many flowers.

Gunned down in a pub, the Ardlea house 8 shots, 2 men just walked in and bang.

There will be a scramble for teratory now.

The taxi business is hitting chrisis point now. Every factory which closes puts a few hundred more drivers on the street.
There is a limited number of fares out there and there is only places on ranks for half or less the number of taxis.

I had a guy from Hong Kong in the car the other day with his girl friend
"Taxi drivers make really good money, e500 a day at least,
They work 4 days then one day to cover expenses,
e2000 a week clear.
If they work the weekends they make loads more money"

Some people think it is true.

I wonder if the had ever told her the story of Cinderella as well.

I was heading back to town when a car pulled in beside me. " Hows business?"
He was going to pick on me for being a green horn, "Well if your own PSV licence is earlier than a C PSV licence keep talking".
He shut up.
"Sorry I thought you had just come in to the business"

    From the cheap fares I have paid in HK, I doubt those figures - maybe 24 hour days ;-)

  3. I'm heading back home soon and can't wait to get to Shelbourne and watch the dogs grace the sand. My Taxi at Stansted Airport will have to stay parked up for a while but it could do with the rest too.

  4. what would he have done if your were new? and how did you drive with your license being held by the cop?

  5. Well lucky 327 they only hold you licence while they process it. Then they let you loose to get caught again.
    A bit like fishing.

  6. We have a numbering system for our hack licenses here, too, which, if you know it, tells you how long the driver's been on the road. It's a 6 digit number and the lower the number, the longer the license has been around. Every once in a rare while a veteran driver gets an acknowledgment from a passenger in the know.

    This is the perfect chance to send a wedding announcement.

    An increasing number of marrying couples (particularly

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
