New Ireland

Re: New Ireland

And I’d been thinking it was Kilburn. It was time they went off and got gentrified, but Papua New Guinea’s taking it a little far, even today. It might be easier to get eaten than to get Broadband.

Re: New Ireland

But. The burning question is of course, is it part of the New British Isles?

Re: New Ireland

What is it about imperial powers and the lack of creativity when it comes to naming colonies? "New Ireland", "Neumecklenburg", "New England"…etc. They had one shot and you’d think they’d of had a little fun with it, or am I the only guy who would have named his colony Frunobulax?

Re: New Ireland

Danny, i’m glad you responded. I was thinking you’d be a fine candidate to make a little visit to New Ireland, given all your belly achin’ about there never being any brand spankin’ "new" discussions or topics here at The Session :-)

Re: New Ireland

I’d love to go. BTW I’m the most guilty of rehashing discussions.

:-0

Re: New Ireland

I think there’s a New Caledonia out there as well.

Do Scottish people have an unconditional right of residence there?

Frunobulax

No doubt there’d craic in Frunobulax 24/7. I’ll take a time share.

Re: New Ireland

Frunobulax. Twinned with Screet.

Re: New Ireland

I say they hold the World Fleadh in New Ireland next year! You can bet Harry B would be there.

Re: New Ireland

I think the humidity would get poor Harry down…

Re: New Ireland

It would have to be the NEW world fleadh.

Re: New Ireland

Yeah, Disney World would be the perfect venue for a ‘Mickey Mouse’ fleadh.

Regards,

Harry.

Re: New Ireland

With a name like that, Screet has to be in the New Shetlands - they exist, don’t they?

Re: New Ireland

the South Shetlands are down in the Antarctic, not too far from the South Orkneys

as well as "New England" in USA, there is a region in Australia called "New England" …. in New South Wales!

Re: New Ireland

In the 80s I was on a series of archaeological digs in Shetland, as I keep saying on threads to do with Shetland. One was a summer job for a few weeks. A girl about to go on that dig told an acquaintance where she was going. The latter said something like, "But it will take you that long to get there, won’t it?" She thought the Shetland Islands were somewhere in the South Atlantic, like the Falkland Islands.

Re: New Ireland

So who is going to write a tune called the "Humours of Frunobulax" - it would have to be a winner.

Re: New Ireland

It’s one of those islands off the coast of France. :(

Re: New Ireland

It’s an ancient power station in South Yorkshire.

In other words, an instantaneous and incredibly powerful laxative whose effects last at least a week.
