Vis-a-vis quality of education in England v Ireland. 1) (Nu)Labour can f**k off 2) that depends on the parents, kids and individual schools.

BTW, Greystones was a fabulous place to live during the 1970's as well. I really enjoyed it. Drive down there and have a look.

I was looking for constuctive comments and i always value Londonuck's as he never seems to think he knows everything about the person putting a question on here!!! Ha!! the comment about superior i thought was hilarious and the Liverpool comment was even better!!! Obviously you know an awful lot about Liverpool??? My reasons for moving are really not of your concern and as for Liverpool, being born and bred here, well...you should keep your negativity to yourself and talk about something you know
Thanks for the info Londonuck

We used to live on Church Road near a cinema and close to the water. I have no idea if the cinema (one of the old fashioned big screen ones) is still there. We moved to England in the Summer of 76.
