kept thinking he'd tell me he was winding me up at any minute, but his missus was just sat beside him, nodding away in agreement. they absolutely hero-worshipped prince charles, were nearly in tears talking about him!
He could have been from Cloughjordan. Its only a small spot, but a massive percentage of its population are protestant, for whatever reason. Maybe its logical to assume they'd all be royalists as well.

Actually, i know a girl from not too far away from there too, and she's maaad into her royal family. Loves the razzamatazz of it all. And she's a catholic.

well i mentioned it to a few people, who were from various parts of ireland, and they said it wasn't that rare a thing. they said you'd meet the odd royalist now and again.

George Hook is always banging on about how much he loves the royals.

Never sure if he's just being a gowl or not.

he goes 'it breaks me heart thinking about charles and him having to go and see where his uncle was killed. it breaks me bleedin' heart'. and his missus was going "aw yea, poor fella, not easy for him'.

i was sat drinking my pint and just waiting for them to both burst out laughing. everybody else i'd met at the wedding were all fucking head-the-balls.

I think theres a big celeb culture aspect to people who love the Royal family. It doesn't get much more glam than being a fucking prince or a queen or whatever. My wifes granny is mad for them and she's very catholic.

yeah this is what i was thinking.

i suppose they don't give a shite about the history or anything else, they just like to see them prance about in frocks, cutting ribbons and holding babies.

excellent use of the word gowl there. It doesn't get used enough in my opinion
