    Oh. Dear. God. My eyes, they burn! What the FUCK?!?

    Carl, Anne, please do not take these clips seriously. Although maybe there were meant that way. Who can tell.

    NM, I believe that is the correct response. Damien (I had the urge to type Damo, but resisted) says there is a chance they will turn up on Podge & Rodge.

    Oh I wasn't…but even in the stills I saw some cool scenery in the background, past that honey. ;)

    I think the Irish countryside, at least what one sees in movies, is amazingly beautiful and I didn't really figure you to be promoting this through the tour guide in the videos….it did give me a good giggle this morning.

    Nuff said.

    Hi, I'm Áine, and welcome to X, a beautiful part of Sligo *bats eyes* and toursim is all I'm into ;)

    And the skort on her! Blowin in the wind! Tis a far cry from Sally O'Brien and the way she might look at you.

  9. Fence says:

    And did you see the one of her at Lissadell.

    Jaysis lads, ye can't be doin dat. Shure she'll freeze ta deat.

  10. NineMoons says:

    Ah, but hold on, Fence. It just occurred to me that as a servant of British imperialism, you (and your unborn children who will be selling out their country in the future) might not be in the best position to judge this fine example of Irish womanhood and the Irish countryside.

    hey there – I betcha the dissemination of Sligozone will actually increase tourism to Sligo! :-) And actually I love the unstudied naturalism of her presentation – far more compelling than some City Council 'Come to Sligo' tourist package…
