My gran once met a woman called Mary, who claimed that she had once visited Dublin and eaten a cockle or two. Well, it’s clear I’m as Oirish as McGinty’s goat, Can one have a passport, please?Liz from Windsor
She wasn’t the only one to jump on the tinker’s cart.
I’ve moved all my money to Dublin and bought County Kildare, so I’m alright. It will be super, it’s just like here, they speak the same language and really appreciate everything we’ve done for them for the last 400 years!Jacob Sea-Fogg, A Posh Chancer
The Irish Government are inundated with applications for citizenship and has increased the application price ten-fold.
Thank feck none of the feckin, feckers, want to live here! We’ve nowhere to put them! And to be sure, it would play havoc with the golf, don’t you know!Paddy Slattery, Tea-Shop Owner
