*hello * just wondering are there any mums from Dublin on board?

chipmonkey Fri 29-Apr-05 12:26:41

Meath, mhamai, but don't you know meath is now a suburb of Dublin.!

Mhamai Fri 29-Apr-05 12:42:45

Ha Ha very good chipmonkey Only discovered mn last wk and I'm hooked Why are there no sites like this in Ireland or are there? prob no where near as good as mn though

Im in Dublin .. But http://www.eumom.com/ie/welcome.asp is Irish based
and http://www.rollercoaster.ie/ (sorry cant be bothered to do actual link)
I dont like Rollercoaster personally but Eumom can be ok but I would say it is more parochial than this site

I am in Surrey but grew up in Dublin, no help I know but hey

Mhamai Fri 29-Apr-05 13:06:11

Thanks flea Do you come back to Dublin at all LGJ? Do you miss it at all?

chipmonkey Fri 29-Apr-05 13:35:22

I don't like rollercoaster either. Maybe its just me but I find having to type in username and password for each post annoying

chipmonkey Fri 29-Apr-05 13:39:37

And if you don't tick a little box at the beginning they e-mail you every time someone replies to your post. If that happened here my e-mail would EXPLODE!!

I have never posted (I am a champion lurker - have only posted here in the last couple of months but have read the site for 3.5 years) but it can get very b"£chy and seems to have been badly plagued by Trolls or some very odd middle aged Irish men!!!

Mhamai


Some years, it might only be every three months on average, other years it could be every six weeks it just depends.

I miss my family and friends, but the only way I would go back now is with a lottery win under my belt.

I phone my mammy every day, some times twice a day and I never stint myself on phone calls.

Hi Mhamai also from that famous Dublin suburb known as Meath - grew up in Rathfarnham though.

and a big 'Failte Romhat' to you chipmonkey. Didn't know you were another Meath woman!!

Mhamai Sat 30-Apr-05 11:36:28

pps meant forgive instead of gorgive,

skerriesmum Sat 30-Apr-05 13:54:47

Hi I'm in Dublin too (Skerries obviously.) I think we're too far away from each other to organise a meetup though eh?

tiny01 Sat 30-Apr-05 14:29:37

hi, another Meath woman based in surrey. Although Ashbourne is more Dublin now. Just thought I would say hi to you girls. I tend to go back as often as I can children permitting. Home is home... Have a good bank holiday weekend

LGJ Sat 30-Apr-05 14:30:34

tiny

Where abouts in Surrey ??

tiny01 Sat 30-Apr-05 14:33:56

Carshalton, near Sutton.

tiny01 Sat 30-Apr-05 14:48:12

sorry LGJ was breast feeding so was typing one handed. Where are you based? Was wondering do you have any suggestions in the area we could take my five yr old for his birthday party. I am sick of the soft play area parties and wanted to do something different this year. Are dd is nearly five weeks old so havnt had time to do anything about it as it is in two and a half weeks. Sorry Mhamai for going on a different tangent on your thread.

stleger Sat 30-Apr-05 15:01:15

My kids think Tullamore is the best town in Ireland. Because there is a waterwheel in the shopping centre. Ideal place to meet up!

Mhamai Sat 30-Apr-05 16:31:39

no worries tiny, think its great that Irish mnrs can get a chance to chat whether here in Irealnd or the Uk, one or two have connected up, so a bit proud of the thread, hope it spans out Ps would like to stress this is not an exclusive Irish thread pps hi skerriesmum, skerries is a wee bit out, but sure if we got to know each other and hit it off, we could always meet up in town for a coffee sometime, weather, kids, job and if we click permitted
