I'm thinking Saith Cainty Dablin here obviously. One of my daughters reckons its Belfast. My other daughter and missis o'p reckon one shouldn't judge people on their appearance, because they both think Neil Young was an attractive looking man, tho' I demur (but then what would I know?).

The plug ugly ones tend to come from the midlands and Cork. But judging by that "other thread" maybe Galway is in with a shout too. Not to mention the peculiar specimens you see on the Northside.

Truer word were never spoken. Your self-awareness is commendable. Cork is great.

Is your wife aware of your sudden interest in male good looks? Would you categorise this new interest as a lifestyle choice or a genetic imperative? Have you considered high heels with that dress?

Yes. We must be vigilant as there are jealous and malicious forces afoot. The truth burns their eyes and they lash out in their ignorance and pain. Pity them. Cork is great.

To be called a "Lasher" by a Cork lad would make any girl weak-kneed.

Can apply to either sex and whomever turns them on, but the last 20 minutes in the nightclub where 'standards' go out the windows, beer goggles are securely fastened, desperation in the air is palpable and previous mingers turn into not bad etc, so obviously I'm talking about Coppers.

Funnily enough the younger generation of women are less pleased with being called lashers.

I always thought the objection was that the clever Cork lads would retort quickly to the compliment by saying to the women " Now put an F in front of it and give us a display":rolleyes:

Face it, we are an island of Marty Morrissey's and Brenda Fricker's.
Arra Marty and Brenda are great. Comfortable in their own skin and you would be guaranteed a good time at any social gathering..

Marty is some yoke alright. He looks like humpty dumpty with a bad dye job. A face for radio if ever there was one.

One of the RTE sports presenters is an exceptionally good-looking bloke.
