Nightmare holiday

Now it's getting into holiday season we are bombarded on Tv with ads for many types of holidays

Got me to thinking of what would always have been my nightmare holiday- a holiday camp!!!

Jeez the thought of it

In Ireland we had Butilns just outside Dublin

To give you an idea how bad it was in its latter days, and this is totally true-

It was eventually closed down and the govt took it over to be used as a holding centre for illegal immigrants

THE ENTIRE CAMP,HAD TO BE UPGRADED!!!!

Now how would you have felt if you had been paying to stay there yet the place needed upgrading to be a prison!!!!!

Re: Nightmare holiday

It really was a Stab Inn!!!

I remember when there used to be regular clashes there between Dubs and anyone else

I remember a group of young lads from Ardoyne getting a pasting with one badly stabbed by a squad of Dubs. There was also a stabbing fatality there not long before it closed

What a dive

Re: Nightmare holiday

Yes I agree

Personally I would prefer they were banned from all licensed premises and if they must travel by air surely some sort of glider towed behind the plane could accommodate screaming brats

In Belfast up until the late 70s without it being law in many working class areas our bars were strictly men only never mind bloody kids

Re: Nightmare holiday

If I may I would like to add camping to my list of horrible holidays

I remember going on a camping break with a mate of mine and waking up to find the tent stolen

However my worst memory was camping at a Bruce Springsteen concert. There was an " abandoned " vehicle near our tent and so for a laugh during the night a mate got on top of it and did a **** on the roof

Next morning I was outside our tent and noticed a horrified couple who had been sleeping in their vehicle with seats down flat-sitting in their run down car staring absolutely horrified at what was sliding down their windscreen

Re: Nightmare holiday

We had bars with a snug room where ladies were allowed and vaults and smoking rooms for us ruffie tuffies.
I find flying business or first class minimises the chance of being disturbed by screeching kids and of course the overhead lockers are bigger so children can be stowed away.
