18 things anyone who’s been out in Carlow will understand

Hup the town.

CARLOW TOWN, IT’S only some craic.

1. Your night out in Carlow begins with a full blown argument about where to go

2.  The Foundry is the end goal

… and you have to tell at least one stranger that it’s the biggest nite club in Ireland, even if you’re not quite sure that it is.

3. But you NEVER go there first

It doesn’t open until half eleven and everyone knows you have to be drunk before you get there.

12. You’ve often been to all the above mentioned places in one night, and you know it’s definitely not possible to avoid at least one of them on a night out

That’s just how they do it in Carlow.

13. You definitely have witnessed, started, or taken part in a dispute outside Supermacs

You don’t call it Superslaps for nothing.

16. Getting kicked out of a venue is no problem once you return after a quick soak up in the Roadhouse

Or you’ll just get barred, again.

17. Everyone is convinced you can get a late drink

You can’t.

18. Getting a taxi on a weekend is hell

Why does EVERYONE WANT THE SAME ONE? You’ve queued for about four hours at least once.
