DUBLIN’S TEMPLE BAR – a place renowned worldwide as the hub of ‘the craic’ in our capital city. To us Irish folk…it’s not so well-esteemed.
Dublin singer Billy Treacy has written an ode to the city’s cultural centre, but don’t expect a misty-eyed, rose-tinted paeon to the tourist trap.
In fact, this is one song about Dublin you wouldn’t want the tourists to hear, with lyrics such as:
There’ll be drink and songs aplenty, but your pockets will be empty / Cos round here, you’re money won’t go far
Keep a good eye on your handbag, yer man there is a toerag/ Make sure you hold on to your phone
And our personal favourite:
Please take my advice that the rest of Dublin’s nice/ Don’t limit yourself to one square mile
All this, set to a tune as catchy as the measles. Give it a listen.Source: Billy Treacy/YouTube
