    Did this really happen?Remember loving it when it came out in the Mongrel mag.

  2. Eoin Says:

    @ Kim – No. I did live in Stoneybatter with a large group of often rowdy friends when this was written, but, the incident was a complete fiction, inspired – if I recall correctly – by the Northern Ireland peace process.

    The NI Peace Process!? I don’t remember batter burgers being an issue there. Methinks you should kindly elaborate a bit more there if at all possible.

  4. Eoin Says:

    No I just mean the way all these armed groups came forward, all self-important and unrepentant, and had to be taken seriously by the process, even tho most of them were little mpre than hoodlums and street criminals.

    I don’t really get what you mean but I’m always a bit slow on Monday morning. Any plans to bring back the Mongrel mag? There’s Nothing like it or nearly as good as it around at the moment/!

    Tbh I’m surprised Willie Joe put his name to something like that.

    But then consider his other shoddy endorsements recently it starts to make sense!!
