If you're going to waterford and wanna live in the sticks, I'd say go to Tramore or Dunmore East.Sorry boys, not been ignoring this thread or responses on purpose, been a mad week.
Currently it’s 7am and on a train to Waterford, after Galway went to Sligo, but Sligo was creepy as fuck and not somewhere we could settle. So decided to go back to galway as it’s a cool wee place, been there last two days but it’s nigh on impossible to get a decent house other than commuting from Mayo for an hour every day. The housing crisis in Ireland is real. And that’s us prepared to pay pretty fair top dollar, but the houses just aren’t available.
Waterford never came up before, but we kept hearing little things about it, so looked it up. One thing that stuck out for us is there is only ONE hostel, which means to me it’s not full of backpacking wankers and tourists. Also, one look on letting sites shows about 7 results for Galway, but pages and pages and pages of actual mansions in Waterford for same price.
Honestly we are passed point of caring about what city is like now, as long as there is a supermarket and it’s commutable for jobs, we are going to live out in the sticks anyway, buy a 4x4, get a dog and just cook and fuck for a year, so Waterford is the one.
It’s a shame as Galway is class really but it’s just a tourist and student place.
Oh, as to getting thrown out of Oz, not sure really, went to renew my visa but some rat bag had put in a call to immigration that I am a very violent person and shouldnt be allowed to stay in country, that’s all they told me, and said outgoing is fine but coming back is an issue, and not to bother trying for partner visa or sponsorship. It will be some little rat bag cunt but I’ll find out. Probably a bitter ex missus from UK that’s pissed off I'm finally happy and engaged . So unfortunately I have a permanent mark in my passport for Oz, which is totally unfounded, and they can’t even tell me why.
On the bright side I was in the isolation room at Sydney airport with Non other than COOLIO who was also getting questioned
I know both very well. Tramore is a town of about 15,000 people 7 miles from waterford city, on the coast, has a big beach, plenty of supermarkets and decent pubs.
Dunmore East is much smaller, but again on the coast in a small fishing village about 5 miles from Waterford city.
