Craic my backside

Rob F sent in possibly one of the best ever worsts, which I probably can’t use, but he followed through with this monstrosity from Wangara. Irish dance academy? In a fuck off roller doored tilt-up in Wangara? With poxy Celtic font? Marvellous! One of my most hated types is that awful Celtic/Gaelic rubbish. As bad as Chinese restaurant font. Maybe they should have used that.

    Not many of the literate Irish people that I know/knew, especially those with any knowledge of history, approve of this “Celticisation”.
    Just another touristy, faux cultural, invention.
    I’ve no complaints about the tilt up concrete, though: It gives a much better surface for ‘after-market’ artistry than endless acres of face brick.

    I don’t understand. Where’s the penis graff on the side of this building? If not for the registered lawn and endless blue sky it would be most unPerth.

    Is there a technical name for the architectural feature above the door that provides neither shade nor protection from the rain?

    Not sure what would be worse in a tilt up shed, an Irish Dance Academy or the more usual suburban swingers club. Or is this a different Northern suburbs we’re talking about.

    My point was these nasty comments are unnecessary and pathetic. An Irish dance school that chose a celtic font, wow we are outrageous. Now run along and go criticise something else.

    Of all the Irish martial arts traditional slab hurling is the most obscure. Slab Murphy used to be champ but I havent followed developments for a while. He got his name by winging some winging poms.
