    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I'm more inclined to go back now because Limerick has changed so much. One of the reasons it was such a grim... or the grimmest of all towns, was that it was the only large city or town in Ireland that didn't have a university. So they put in a university about 20 years ago, and it has changed the whole atmosphere of the place.”

I remember the Gaelic script and things like that. And this awful, putrid lavatory that we used outside.”
