No, he’s playing out of his league. Bishopstown is where Cork people live when they can’t afford a place in Douglas. And Douglas still has a fair few people living in semi-ds. (Not that they’d admit it in public.) In fairness, you’ll find some doctors like to live in Bishopstown. You’ll also find that they’ll tell you their salary in the first 30 seconds of conversation. So I doubt if this guy fits the bill. Which is pretty high in your case, Portia-Bell. (You should do something about your name.)
There is obviously never a bad time to insult someone from Dublin. But there are a lot of Cork people looking to fly planes over the capital saying things like, “Ye think ye’re it.” So you’ll need a licence. Also, Seán Sherlock has been mentioned as the next leader of Labour. I’m not sure you can put them in the same sentence as ‘major political party.’ It doesn’t look good that they have barely more seats than the Healy-Raes. And that they make even less sense when they open their mouths!
I wouldn’t pick Paddy’s Day to show off your fabulous taste. Let’s just say the definition of sophistication in Cork during March is someone who doesn’t have a puke on Oliver Plunkett Street. So the bar is pretty low. As for buying an eight grand ring for a toddler. That isn’t considered classy anywhere. Except maybe Waterford.
No. It’s a worry. Cork people are very familiar with the Dingle Peninsula. It’s where our parents sent us to learn how to have sex while speaking a new language. I think it’s where I got my fetish for Italian men. ‘Go hiontach’. The locals on the peninsula speak English and Irish. You won’t be able to understand them either way. You’ll also find a lot of long-haired types who want to get away from it all. Particularly when ‘it all’ involves having a job.
Just stand there in your Italian jersey and don’t say anything. Your oily chat up lines are no good until the women have downed five Heinekens. This is a tipping point for Irish women. From then on any guy in a jersey is actually hotter than a fireman at a hen party.
I have 18 entries in my phone for ‘Guy from the Sextant.’ (Two more and I get a t-shirt. Bring it on!) There is however one thing the rugby chicks will want to know before they consider you as suitable material. So make sure you practice the following sentence.... Ciao bella, I went to the Pres of Venice. After that it’s just a matter of putting ‘in’ and ‘Flynn’ in a sentence.
