I don't know what attracted so many back in the 80's and 90's to Murica....work i s'pose!!
Never had any inclination to go there and even less now...i actually wouldn't go if i got a free ticket.
You only had to have experienced Dublin during the troubles to see that England and America were lands of opportunity.

At least if you got in and got a job you had your dignity.

I lived in Dublin and  Glasgow in the 70s and 80s, both run-down and depressing as f**k.
No wish to return to the Ireland of yesteryear.

Dublin was a bit grey alri,was lucky enough to serve my apprenticeship and got to know Dublin really well as a courier after that and met some interesting people in that revolving door game,some are still friends but i was always happiest in Dublin tbh.

Another guy who does motorbike odyssey programmes  is Henry Cole.
He always rides nice machines but would bore you to death.
