  2. Blackpool the jewel of Lancs got the big thumbs down too as did quite a few in Wales.

    Looks as if the North Wests tackiest resort is going to be doing stag/hen do,s for a while yet as taking the waters is,nt likely to be high on anyones agenda.

    So let me get this straight...

    Swimming - Nireland.

    Nireland - Swimming

    We are discussing swimming. In Northern Ireland. Are we clear on that? Tell me I am not having an acid flashback?


    And Northern Ireland, yes?

    I know it's hard to believe, but we're a hardie breed here.( also helps your swimming if your not right in the head!!)
  5. A few of us took a trip up to a beach near Port Stewart for a bit of a swim once. We lasted 20 mins before getting ice-cream headaches and the onset of hypothermia. We bugged out to a decent bar in Coleraine and got on it instead.

    Swimming off the north coast of NI is for proper bonafide sea creatures only.....or the dead.

    I didnt get that joke at all. I had some swimmers working the cockle beds down Morecambe Bay way a few years ago. There was some sort of fuss so I moved to Kamchatka for a while. Horrible ******* place.

    So, back on thread? You are telling me that people have swum. In the sea. In Nireland? With wet suits or floatation suits? Or in their budgie catchers? Which?

    After a swim they more like Bee Hummingbird catchers:nod:
  9. Fella jumped into a river in Strabane as well a week ago while handcuffed escaping the police, he's feared dead.....

    Does that mean its unsafe to swim in that river too...

    He was handcuffed????
  11. From what I read, he was being transferred between cars and done a runner and jumped into the river.

  14. That was very selfish of them, considering that you originally invented helicopters and the sea.

    You two dogging ****.
  15. If by hardie you mean alcoholic, tracksuit sporting chavs then I agree.
