11 grim places West Dubliners got the shift

You’ve shifted in at least ONE of these spots, admit it.

WEST DUBLIN, IT’S a hell of a place.

1. The Spa noname disco

The no name was the go-to place for first shifts in Lucan and Palmerstown.

2. Under the bridge of the M50

Dangerous, yes, but there was guaranteed to be somebody you wanted to shift and write their name all over your pencil case.

It’s no longer with us RIP, so don’t go looking. But if you were a teenager back in the day and didn’t get a shift in Light nightclub, well, we’ll say nothin.
