Wow, it’s been a week since I posted. oh well, time flies without you even realising it.
The reputation of Limerick has been getting a bit of a hammering in the last week or so, thos keeping me occupied on the Limerick Blogger site tryint to keep up with it all.
Two people were murdered last week. One was killed in a drive by shooting in Garryowen and the other was found with a gunshot wound to the head in a shallow grave in Caledonian Park in Prospect two days later. And this week two men jog out of a car on Nicholas Street and battered another motorist landing him in hospital.
The sad fact of the matter is that because they are from Limerick, some people believe it is expected of them to act all hard and nasty. It is a pity. Now criminality in Limerick is celebrated by the youth who have probably never been a victim of crime once.
The idea of gun toting mafiosa type characters might be romantic to them but they are not the ones being robbed blind so that some heroin addict can get their next fix. They will laud the joyriders on their bebo pages now, but whine about high insurance for their cars when they are older..
