Jaysus...

I can hear the conversation on the river bank now.
I can totally see a line, just left of that reactionary over there. I'd be totally up for running it. Its such a pitty that I left my [insert random piece of gear] at home.

Does anyone know if there is any truth in the rumour that Daithi Power drove his car down it the other day?..I've been hearing mixed reports of flooding and cars in the People's Republic up here in the capital
