I just mentioned I had one- no photos were posted.

People either think my taste is absolutely exquisite or utterly appalling. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground.

I do look fab in it though if I was so myself.
Which thread were you on when you discussed going to 'Iran' accompanied by your nanny?

I recall Dubai, only because I associated it with layovers at Dubai airport. I wouldn't be interested in going to Iran.

I can say from personal experience as well as opinions of friends both in my school and others they all really enjoyed their time. That said the reality is some wont adapt to it and leave I found those that stay tend to grow into it. The best years were the last years, everyone really knew each other very well, and if you weren't friendly with some one you learned to tolerate and get to know them you had to especially when you consider you have to deal with them from the moment you get up until you go to bed. I would say (this is only my opinion) you make a larger amount of close and very close friends, who remain close after you leave.

It also teaches you a good deal of independence most people experience living away from home for the first time when going to university if even. While boarders have been dealing with such challenges for six years prior.

Okay, and I see the psycho stalker is still at you.
That unfortunately will never end until one of us gets banned. Anyway I have never been to Dubai and it is not somewhere I would ever go to. I do enjoy laying on a beach for a few days but there are far more friendly and pleasant places to do that. Why would I want see skyscrapers?

Well this is thing; it does seem to have really good effects on some kids and terrible ones on others- what are the differences in character between the two?

Hard to say. Like I said the hardest time for most was the early years home sick ect. Those that did not like it in the vast majority of case from what I saw left within the first one to three years for various reasons. One benefit of boarding school was that the nasty characters also tended to leave. They got isolated which in such an environment I imagine can be quite difficult. But it meant by fourth and fifth year you tend to have quite a tight group.
But as to character traits I not really sure what the main difference is. If your an outgoing person its definitely going to be much much easier, if not you will learn at least to some extent.

I don't believe that Rural stalks Ratio or anyone else for that matter. That's completely absurd. Please be objective here.

Ratio wrote something hysterically that we all read, and I recall him also throwing in something like "you would want me to abort … blah blah" . Ratio asked Emily to delete the post where she had quoted his hysterical post; Ratio alleged it could ID him.

Now Ratio is impugning two people's characters (that is, Rural and someone else's). In other words, Ratio can't prove these wild allegations.

Emily said that Ratio has written stuff on this thread that could ID him, and therefore asked "Why did he ask her to delete the above mentioned post?"

I quoted some of the things that Ratio has written in the past to back up that statement.

Ratio is quite happy to hurt others with outrageous comments attacking their integrity. I know that she has done this to a few people who haven't contributed to this thread. He didn't worry about stressing those people out. Unbelievable DOUBLE STANDARDS.

Furthermore, I, personally, see no reason to maintain confidentiality over what he wrote in the afore-mentioned post that he asked to be deleted, as he has already demonstrated that he isn't worried about his anonymity (holiday abroad around Remembrance Day, etc. etc., partner psychiatrist, age, family information, the list and babble continues endlessly … ).

I have never been to Dubai in my life (nor would I step foot in it) - I messed up totally in answering Rural who I know was obeying orders from someone I obeyed orders from once in regards to another poster but the very fact that she would have chosen Rural as proxy when she could have chosen others given that she has had ample to study my psychology is beyond me.

I pmed you as I said because I know from sources outside of here that people from here have tried to trace me and I don't want any very stressful period of my life. It was incredibly foolish. I make not only mistakes but commit sins- unlike yourself and Starry I have admitted that I am a deeply flawed person. I should never have replied to Rural. I know that and I live with that. Was in the wrong asking PMing you? Very possibly. Another thing for me to live with.
Should be retracted - no proof.

Well I did. I know what Piesters are like. :)

I like Emily, initially I didn't but then when I saw who she was more clearly I did, that wont change though I think that a lot of the time genuine communication between us is impossible, however in a boarding school situation we could get on fine however weird she found me occasionally. Rural is a different story and there is a bit of a mystery here- she who will remain nameless knows that I despise people who are convinced of their own goodness so why did she send Rural out as a flying monkey? She usually attempts a semblance of style.
Ditto (as in above post).

Why? You know exactly who I mean.

As regards the other stuff- the Mass is in Latin, you desire to really focus on it so you learn what it means.
If we all know who you mean, and we do, why the pretence at anonymity here?

You seem to worry about your own reputation, but couldn't give a fig about anyone else's.

I've called out Ratio as a fake persona (imitating a female voice ... badly).. He is a holocaust denier.

I doubt that Ratio et Fides would be safe wearing a British Remembrance Day hijab (covered in poppies) in Iran … BRITAIN is a RED RAG TO A BULL to some Iranians.

In fact, I don't believe a word that comes out of his mouth.

I have a retentive memory, and recall Ratio mentioning Dubai, NOT Iran around the same time as his post about the British poppy hijab. You could probably get away with a British Remembrance Day red poppy-covered hijab in Dubai, so I didn't mention to Ratio that it would be a red rag to a bull there.

Further, his stooge Roisin3 is also believed by some to be a fake persona.

I can tell you that Roisin3 also has double standards. He's called Emily names like "whore" and tried to excuse his name calling by saying the meaning was all in Emily's mind. I wrote something benign that was DEFINITELY in Roisin3's mind (what's he's picked up in the media, etc), and he went rabid dog on me.

Would you believe that Roisin3 wanted to meet me*** face to face for a fisticuffs. He deleted one of his posts promoting violence and worse. Roisin3's saloon bar talk is on Repeal the 8th thread (starts around webpage 165 continuing on to webpage 200+). You will observe that he started the fight.

When the great beloved leader of shin fein had the children of the poor out rioting on school nights.
His own son was tucked up all warm and cosy in a Private Expensive Religious Boarding School In The West Of Ireland. Then again bar work in certain pubs in west Belfast pays well.
I know we've met before, do you recall what you were called then?

I'm surprised and saddened to read that Cistercian College Roscrea (MSJ) is calling it a day. True they lost to Gonzaga in the Schools Rugby Cup on Wednesday but this is a bit of an extreme reaction!

Some interesting names among the school's alumni:-

Brian Cowen – Former Taoiseach

Conor Brady – Former Editor of The Irish Times

Cormac Bourke - Editor of the Sunday Independent

Dick Spring – Former international rugby player and Tánaiste

David Andrews – Former Minister for Foreign Affairs

Jim Glennon – Former international rugby player and former TD.

Barry Cowen - Fianna Fáil TD

Mr Justice Vivian Lavan (RIP) – former High Court judge

Willie Mullins – Racehorse trainer and former jockey

Séamus Hennessy – All-Ireland medallist with Tipperary (Hurling)

Gavin Duffy – International rugby player

Well-known boarding school closes its doors after 112 years - Independent.ie
