Overblown a tad, but the stereotype does exist, you will see them in Dundrum today, can’t miss them, gross over application of makeup and sounding like a cross between Sabrina the teenage Witch meets the D4 accent. (eww gross) as they follow the leader (the one with the most shopping bags) acround the center.
Yes, I believe this will silence skeptics who said that the “rent a room” strategy was not an option for those purchasing 1 bed apartments
Agreed, the article is cringe-inducing. But as GB says, you can experience the real thing in Dundrum. And it’s not just teens who behave like this, but people who are considerably older and should know better.
The anecdote in question sounds like an urban myth, but I know at least two couples who recently purchased houses in Dundrum for pretty substantial amounts, largely on the basis that it’s a great place to shop. The centre may be new and shiny now, but in 10+ years it will no doubt have been superseded by some other imitation of an American mall located elsewhere in South Dublin.
He he brilliant I love it! I’m from Dundrum and have seen what the writer is talking about, its scary to imagine what these spoilt teens will turn into as adults.
I plan on having more money than my parents did while I was growing up but there’s not a chance that my children will be given that kind of luxury and designer gear, they need to understand the value of hard-earned cash like my not so spoilt generation!
It seems to be saying that we will be able to spend our way out of recession! What a load of rubbish. You can’t out-sentiment basic problems like credit contraction, high oil/commodity prices, US recession.
? I thought a strong euro was bad in particular for certain industries, but in general, in a time of high commodity prices, it tends towards price stability and prevents rampant consumer price inflation (which could lead to a price-wage spiral). So a strong euro, in my book, is, in general, a good thing?
