My Day In The Real Capital...Cork City

What a reliable enterprise... 

If there's one thing I hate in this life more than cabbage, or school, or study, or homework, or well the list goes on it's 'Bus Eireann' (I don't even like them enough to put in the fada). Now I'll tell you the truth I must have went up and down the Rote 55 from Waterford to Limerick a good fifty times with no problems but the one time I decide to take the leap of faith and head to the real capital Cork, That's where my problems with Bus Eireann lie.

It was on the day May 20th 2012 that my best friend had her college interview so I tagged along for that little bit of moral support, Good thing!!! The stress that flippin bus caused us. 7am on that morning I rose from my bed and began to get ready sprinting out the door at 9am and thinking we were almost late for the 9.20 bus to Cork. So as we sat at the bus stop (Please note we do not have a station just a stop with an unstable seat that almost put me flat out on my back ....anyway.) Along came the Limerick bus (55) and I had a feeling!! It was like a sixth sense I said 'Annmarie..We should get on that bus' Of course my opinion was pushed aside mainly due to the fact the only reason I'd head to Limerick is to see rugby players. Anyway hours and hours went by (Well minutes that felt like hours) and at 9.45 we decided to ring the bus startion, in Dublin. 'Ahh the bus is late, 10minutes' the Dubliner explained. Shur that was fair enough yano at least we didn't miss it. Low and behold along came the bus that wasn't going to Cork only to Clonmel but we were reccomended to head down to Waterford then get the bus from Waterford to Cork. Fair enough we headed of to Waterford to get the 11am bus only to arrive on the other bus that brought us to Waterford at 11.10 missing the 11am bus. 

So after we were screamed at by some staff we decided to wait until the 12 o clock bus to Cork and what did we do with out spare 30minuts, do what every normal person does at 11.30 am head to Mc Donalds. 


Finally three hours late we were on our way!! :-D Plus on our bus we could indugle on Free Wifi. Totally joking it's bus Eireann that didn't work, even though I spent a good twenty minute survey...

Then all of a sudden we were here.... 

Cork CitAy Boi.....


So we arrived in Cork and met our lovely Corkish friends, I LOVE Cork people in general. If only the spoke a little bit slower they would be the perfect type of people. 


So here we were let loose in Cork and what was the first thing I wanted to go and see you ask??

Havana Brown...

I'd heard of this big night club in Cork that Simon Zebo DJ's at now and then ( Munster and Ireland rugby player ..Dya know him??....)
Here I am with Zebo..Jesus I hope I'm not making anyone jealous anyway..
That wasn't the plan ;)
Anyway himself DJ's there often and since my older cousin told me to stay away from it it was my first place to check out.

I always pictured this huge massive beautiful building...

However.....

 
So we went exploring and had the LOL's and the craic but then it was time to head back to the lovely aul bus station..

So delayed was our bus...Well that's bus Eireann for you!! So half an hour later we all pilled onto the bus before the driver started screaming at us!! Mental abuse some would call it .. Others would say talking loudly to two tired teenagers. After we were sent of the bus as it wasn't going near our town we were sent to the inspector who sent us back onto the bus as we traveled the long three hour journey home, with a broken ankle and busted hip.

So that was my day in Cork, I wish I could tell you more but unfortuently Bus Eireann ruined out whole day!! Imagine living in a country with a reliable bus service.. Ahhhh Bliss.....

Still can you ever go wrong with the day of school in a city with your friends.... I think not...
