Raheny Village, Dublin 5, Ireland

I was born n' bred here and it has some great ol' memories. I went to St Assams then St Pauls, Sybil Hill. My sister went to Manor House just down the road. I went to the Grove Social Club at weekends which was the same hall as I went to gym in school on a Monday morning - yeuch! Also went to the Cricket club in Clontarf

I drank in the Cedars Lounge for the most part but also went to the Green Dolphin now the Watermill. I frequented The Inn and The Station House which used to be called The Manhattan. Then there was Foxhounds and The Old Sheiling Hotel.

Macari's chipper was the regular stop off (a Godsend!) on the way home for a snack box - yummy! The chips were bleedin' deadly! ah the memories!

What Is RSS? RSS Explained

What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

Why RSS? Benefits and Reasons for using RSS

RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site's email newsletter. The number of sites offering RSS feeds is growing rapidly and includes big names like Yahoo News.

What do I need to do to read an RSS Feed? RSS Feed Readers and News Aggregators

Feed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to grab the RSS feeds from various sites and display them for you to read and use.

A variety of RSS Readers are available for different platforms. Some popular feed readers include Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac), FeedReader (Windows), and NewsGator (Windows - integrates with Outlook). There are also a number of web-based feed readers available. My Yahoo, Bloglines, and Google Reader are popular web-based feed readers.

St Pauls College, Sybil Hill, Raheny, Dublin - Class of 1985

I have to admit, for the most part, I did enjoy the experience of attending St Paul's secondary school back in 1979 - 1985.
There was also the strange experience of the weekend social activities being tied to the school, as a lot of us went to 'The Grove' on Saturdays and many a flaggin' was imbibed just before passing the bouncers on the door. (look straight ahead - don't make eye contact!) If you there at the time and have any memories to share why not post them here or upload a old photo or 2?

So there were a good ol' bunch o' peeps in the EU sponspored course way back then. I still can't believe we got paid per class to go to college, not that that helped my attendance record much. I thinked I learned more about drinking and pool/snooker/cards than I did accountancy. The binges in 'The Lancer' were great (although the place was a dive) and I'm still recovering from 'rag week'. Share the good ol' times here and post an ol' message or upload a photo here. This was a holiday camp if ever there was one.  I suppose you enjoyed your Late Holidays too?
