The Weekly Punk Bath

I have taken up swimming at Markievicz pool, which is conventiently centally located but is that why on monday at 11am a full punk contingent large enough to require their own lane wander into the pool? Swimming in Ireland is far from cheap most places are close to four euros but Markievicz, who does may I add have a very nice pool and good location, keeps its prices substainly higher at 5:50 off peak times and €6 during peak hours. So what could explain the seemingly independent motivated large number of crusties decending towards the pool at this time?

Lets look up the pool timetable titled "Fitness for Everybody" one light yellow square stands out. Unemployed: Free swim on Monday 11-12. That explains that then.

I always wondered why the pool was so minging on Monday evenings…only joking :-)
I've been swimming there for 2 years now. I really like it but in the evening it gets very packed especially earlier in the week.

Also, you need to be aware of 'swimming couple's'. They are an evil class of swimmers who engage in outrageous public displays of affection at either end of the pool. Why they even bother to get into the pool I often wonder and God only knows what goes on in the deep end when us regular swimmers aren't looking....oh I shudder!!
my mate used to work in the swimming pool in mosney....the shit he's seen...literally
