remember the shi- used to get in there? and the itchy powder, and the suction things u put underneath the saucers. we bought stink bombs and dropped them over the balconies in the picture houses hahahah u could see them moving from one side to the other, glaring at each other. we even cleared out a few bookies , lol :D

well seand we were just kids with no sense,we cleared the central a few times,the shows then were continuous, in the ahambra, & the central, maybe the gaiety as well, all the oul lads would sleep in there for hours, they used to say u went in at half 2 and came out half ate(8) with the bugs in them. we would sleg the oul lads and yell as they left"you dropped yer blanket" i dont recall anyone being abused in there, the oul lads were the ones being abused, hahaha i know we were bad articles, from the ghettos, what can ye say?

yes i saw that one boxer, when i think of us poor wee innocent kids in there , with all them oul lads, scratching themselves, most of them were from the st vincent de paul , drifters and the mentally ill, sure it was some joint, i remember the queues outside the gaiety on  sat, afternoons, watching the clock on the sinclair building, wishing it was time to get in.thx for putting them on boxer.
