Plans For Pride?
 
# 76 : Wednesday 21-6-2017 @ 00:12
 
 
I heard that the route of the parade is a lot different this year than the usual one. Well, it must be if its ending up in Smithfield.

I avoid Pride these days as there just too much alcohol involved after the parade. I tend to avoid pubs these days for a very good reason.

You heard, lol, like it's just hearsay!

It's been known for months the route was changed!

Don't like the new route at all. It just doesn't have the same impact as marching down O'Connell St and Dame St.

If people are gagging there are bars in the area, i'm planning to be at the start for the formalities and might then join the Amnesty crew to Smithfield. 30,000 are expected to take part. Does anyone know how many rainbow flags are flying over the city.?

Last time I checked, 216.35 (6.35 because some of them are partially torn)

Walking in the middle of road works may make the experience memorable for all the wrong reasons...
I would reckon the Pride Committee did not make that choice just "for a change".

And as Frodo said, it has been common knowledge for a long time. Less so amongst people not involved with, or not intent on walking. Thus people with no vested interest in using the best possible route, but with a lot of reasons to give out about it.

Don't understand why they don't sell booze in a square where there is a stage and music, know your audience.

Because... they know their audience...?


And by the way, booze will be sold in bars.
(But one cannot exit the bar with a drink in hand...)

The ban is on entering the square with booze!

Under the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act 1994 , it is an offence for you to be so drunk in a public place that you could reasonably be presumed to be a danger to yourself or to anyone around you. If found guilty of this offence, you could be liable to a class E fine and a member of the Garda Siochana can confiscate any alcohol you may be carrying.

It is illegal for a licence holder to sell alcohol in a closed container (i.e., can or bottle) for consumption off the premises in a place 100 metres from the premises. If you purchase alcohol in this way, you could be liable for a class E fine.

Well if there is roadworks, that's fair enough. As for it being common knowledge, maybe for Dubliners it is.

Or anyone who has an interest in Pride march: http://dublinpride.ie/parade/

I found out the day I Googled Pride's date, and wanted to find out when the march started...
If I had no intention of going, I would not have found out... but it would have been none of my business

Someone said :
This year the parade route will be different, due to on going construction with the Luas Cross City project.

Since when do people need a good reason to complain? Or even a reason at all?

They seem to be doing what they can under the circumstances. Whingers be whinging.

At least there are still some genuine people like Sugartits who have concern, voice them, and once they find out the facts that had escaped them, they accept that their concerns have been adequately addressed.

So there is still hope.
