Sky high prices

I thought rip-off Ireland was gone but, unfortunately, no one told the powers that be in Croke Park.

Charging €25 and €15 for children to walk around the top of the ground on the new Sky walk? Do you get your dinner as well!

It’s €18 to go to the top of the Empire State building and €16 to go up the Statue of Liberty (including Ellis Island and the ferry across). I know where I won’t be going.
