Re: What's the Irish situation?

'Anyway, Yes Nick - I did train under Shane (my 1st instructor). He's popped over here a couple of times but I keep missing him. I used to go up to your neck of the woods myself for courses and trained with a few of them up there.. the good old days eh?'

I thought so. Glad Im not going mad (Madder). I was over Northern Ireland with him last June, but it was just a small trip to some Karate folks and I cant even remember the name of the place we went to. I dont want to generalise or say anything derogatory about anyones country/town/city but I didnt really enjoy what I saw/experianced and It would take a hell of a lot to get me back to Northern Ireland...

Saying that Durham has it's dark side (as does everywhere), especially if your a student or stick out like a sore thumb in any other way...

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
