". . . . the GAA have left. Now “Joes” have the use of all the pitches. . . ."

Ahem,
Not quite so. Cuala GAA actually moved closer into "the shadow of the steeple" to the grounds beside the new link road.
Relocated - but never left.

True Michael, but they did leave the Noggin fields.

Correct Strum, they started out after the amalgamation of the two clubs with a small dressing room next to Joe Gallaghers and beside the road, and later had a second pitch next to Rochestown Avenue before moving to Dalkey and now to the field behind Rochestown Park.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Strum....just noticed your location.... :lol: :lol:
Sallysupermarket.....

Well I'm from Blackrock twoshoppingcentres......we would never let you lot get one over us :lol: :lol:

I am delighted for the people of Sallynoggin to at last have affordable food with a good choice located on their doorsteps. For years people who could ill afford the bus fares had to bus to DúnLaoghaire and drag the shopping home on the bus. It will bring more traffic but as the rising tide raises all boats Woodies, Power City and the Noggin Inn will get new customers who forgot they were there.

I was in the little Euro shop in Sallynoggin yesterday. Great little shop if a little untidy.
Aldi, Lidl, or Tesco do not stock fly-spray. Could not find it in Woodies either. Got it there!

I wonder do they light bulbs with that quaint old style feature - I.e. light up rooms.

The last place I could find a 'real' one was a tiny hardware store just down from Eden Villas, opposite Glasthule Providers.

wuu
Do you remember flypaper back in the day? :shock:
I think I remember seeing several of them hanging from the ceiling in CONNOLLY's supermarket on Patrick Street. :shock:
Reading up on flypaper.....the chemicals used in the early ones included arsenic!
Sure the flies didn't stand a chance! :shock:

Nearly impossible to be incandescent these days, unless you stocked up.

I found some of those in Dealz but they had a tendency to explode, so I gave up on that. Be wary of cheap imports as they say.
I got some halogen bulbs in Woodies and i am happy enough with those.

Michael won't be happy. I saw a man today with a metal-detector in Thomastown Cuala digging holes in the pitches. :D

Everytime I see this Topic Sallynoggin I think of Woodies. I am a closet D.I.Y maniac and cannot pass a hardware store in any part of the world. The house is bulging with yokes that do this and that!!

But, Woodies big plus is the 20% discount on Thursday for the over 60's.

I can't understand why other outlets don't follow suit. I am always blown away by the amount of Silver haired and "no haired" patrons on a Thursday...and the excitement of waking on a Thursday knowing a trip to Woodies is on the timetable :lol: :lol: who said "sad life" ? :lol: :lol:

Aren't we blessed with so many cost friendly efficient shops in the locality. Horror of horrors my washing machine gave up the ghost yesterday in the middle of a wash. :shock: I hopped in the car and went around to Power City in Sallynoggin. I was immediately taken charge of by Michael who listened to my story and brought me to the correct aisle. He had this and that but finally recommended a machine for a very good reduction. I paid and that evening the delivery was made with a pleasant chap who took away the old machine, installed the new one, took all the packaging and waited until the machine was working before he left.

Service with a smile and not a problem wuu wuu

Sure we don't know what famous people move amongst us...there I was listening to the radio the other day and Dustin the turkey was being interviewed.
He kept emphasising that he was from "Sallynoggin"...so there you go!!!

not rich but famous...anyone know who he is??...behind the puppet I mean.
